More About Dark Star Requiem

Congratulations to everyone involved with the recent Tapestry/Luminato production of Dark Star Requiem, a monumental dramatic oratorio (written by poet/librettist Jill Battson and composer Andrew Staniland) about the AIDS epidemic. Here are some follow-up links for those of you who missed the production and those who saw the production but want to explore a bit deeper:
Many people mentioned that they loved the work, but needed more time to genuinely engage with Jill Battson's libretto. Folded&Gathered Press and A.K. Collings Fine Art have come out with two editions of the Dark Star libretto, a $20 soft cover limited edition (500 copies printed) and a $350 deluxe boxed set edition (50 copies printed). If you're interested in purchasing one of these editions, visit Folded&Gathered for more information.

Update 11am: More reviews from Anya Wassenberg in Art and Culture Maven and Joseph So in La Scena Musicale.
