Classic Arts News   New Opera The Mummy Gets Readings in New York
Staged readings of the new comic opera The Mummy will be given December 4, 5, 11, and 12 at the Actor's Temple in New York.

Admission to the readings is free.

Mummy's music is by George Quincy, a former music advisor to Martha Graham and composer of the opera Home and the River. The libretto, which was inspired by the 1930s film, is by Thayer Burch, Quincy's wife and co-collaborator on a project for children. John Yaffe will conduct.

The staged readings are being directed by Sue Lawless, a frequent on- and off-Broadway director, and features baritones Timothy Lafontaine and Steven Kirby, sopranos Deborah Ann Faw and Casey Cole, mezzo-soprano Judith Skinner, tenor Byron Singleton, and coloratura Sharmane Davis.
