Thomas Holliday - Falling Up: The Days and Nights of Carlisle Floyd

Colfax Avenue: Composer, conductor, opera educator, writer, and lecturer Thomas Holliday will discuss and sign his new book Falling Up: The Days and Nights of Carlisle Floyd, The Authorized Biography (Syracuse University Press). A modern Renaissance man, Carlisle Floyd is our greatest living opera composer and librettist, a trained concert pianist, a master stage director, and a teacher. In Falling Up, Holliday offers an intimate account of the life that shaped the words and music. With more than forty photographs, the detailed evolution of Floyd’s fourteen operas, and in-depth analysis of his nonoperatic works, Falling Up is essential reading for opera fans and professionals alike, a book that moves, informs, and entertains. Colorado artist Jesse Guess, who contributed the portrait of Mr. Floyd to this book, will join us at this event.
