WCQ364 Opera Composer Jake Heggie

Host: Amy Matheny with Cleo Harris

Amy and Cleo are on this Queercast. Cleo will be in Chicago in June as a judge for the Windy City Gay Idol Finals! Just another reason to come out and watch the talent! Cleo shares who her favorites are and who she'd choose to have sit at her table. They discuss Hawaii's Civil Union Bill, legalization of marijuana vs. legalization of gay marriage, Obama and DADT and Cleo's travels in a very gay June schedule.

Guest: Openly gay opera composer and creator Jake Heggie joins Amy on the Queercast. He has been called the man who can keep alive the American Opera. Jake discusses what keeps the opera fresh and compelling. He also shares when he knew he would compose opera music and how it would become his career. Jake talks about working with Armistead Maupin and playwright Terrence McNally. His opera Three Decembers comes to the Chicago Opera Theater on May 8, 12, 14 and 16.
