The knowledge that Sara Nealy is managing a new opera project is all I need to know to sign up for it. Above and beyond her years of experience at the helm of opera companies, Sara has a deep love for and instinctive understanding of opera and those who make it, impeccable taste, formidable organizational talents, and people skills worthy of a UN ambassador. She adds class, efficiency, elegance, and good humor to everything she touches. I can't recommend her highly enough.

The premiere of Black Fire White Fire coincided with the anniversary of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass). The widespread violence of Nov. 9-10, 1938 signaled an escalation in the Nazi reign of terror. The intention was to mark that sad event with remembrance and hope.
