Mark Adamo (b01/01/1962)

While Mark Adamo has composed a substantial folio of chamber, choral and orchestral music, the Philadelphia-born composer-librettist’s principal work has been for the opera house. Commissioned for a 1998 première by Houston Grand Opera, Little Women, after the novel by Louisa May Alcott, was the first opera for which Adamo composed both music and libretto; it has been nationally telecast on the PBS series Great Performances, released on CD by Ondine Records, and heard in over 70 national and international engagements from New York to Mexico City, Minneapolis, Adelaide, Tel Aviv, Calgary and Tokyo, including two for which Adamo served as stage director. His second opera, Lysistrata, or The Nude Goddess, after Aristophanes, was commissioned and introduced to comparable critical acclaim by Houston Grand Opera for its fiftieth-anniversary season in March 2005 and made its East Coast début in March 2006 at New York City Opera, where Adamo was composer-in-residence from 2001–2005. In January 2009, San Francisco Opera announced it had commissioned Adamo to compose both score and libretto for an opera entitled The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, of which the company plans a première in June 2013.
