JFK Sings on the Moon

Fort Worth Opera

Recently, the Fort Worth Opera decided to commission a new opera to tell the story of JFK’s final night—a night he spent with the first lady in a Fort Worth hotel room. They turned to two up-and-coming stars of contemporary opera, the composer David T. Little and librettist Royce Vavrek. I interviewed Little and Vavrek and produced this feature for Studio 360 explaining how they wrote an opera about one of the most famous political figures of the 20th century.
