A Thousand Splendid Suns: Opera at the Library!

By now, many of you know that we are hosting a workshop performance of a brand new opera based on Khaled Hosseini’s book A Thousand Splendid Suns. Showcasing this “work in progress” is a great opportunity for our library. Not only is the book a bestseller, but the composer and librettist have each received awards for their earlier works. And, the opera has just been picked up for the 2020 season by Seattle Opera!

Stephen Kitsakos and Sheila Silver appeared on WAMC Public Radio’s The Roundtable to talk about this new work. Click Here to listen to the archive of the interview.
