Opera Conference 2010: Keynote Address by Daniel Catán

Composer Daniel Catán has written four operas: Florencia en el Amazonas, La Hija de Rappacini (Rappaccini's Daughter) and Salsipuedes, A Tale of Love, War and Anchovies; Catán's next opera, Il Postino, based on the Oscar-winning film, will soon debut at LA Opera. His lyrical, romantic style lends itself particularly well to the human voice, which features prominently in the majority of his works; he has been compared to Debussy, Richard Strauss and Puccini. The transcription of his speech, Composing Opera: A Backstage Visit to the Composer's Workshop, gives insight into his inspirations, influences and epiphanies.
