As another season is about to begin, I would like to expand my operatic horizons. If it wasn't for Philip Glass, my opera affinities would all be in the past (merely surviving World War I). So maybe some of you could make suggestions regarding living composers or composers who died not so long ago (Menotti would obviously fall in that category). Do you love some contemporary operas, which ones, and what makes you crazy about them? Or do I have to resign myself to forget about new pieces?
