New opera on Alma Mahler

The Irish composer Raymond Deane has written an opera on the love affairs between Mahler’s widow and the painter Oskar Kokoschka. Titled The Alma Fetish, it is being premiered in a concert version in Dublin tonight. Wish I had known sooner.

    I’m looking forward to it tonight!
