საქართველო 's Always On My Mind -- Along With New Music And New Opera

Now on the homeland optical turntables: Stephen Hartke's The Greater Good or The Passion of Boule de Suif; and Pascal Dusapin's Faustus, the Last Night.

Now on the Mind's Eye turntable: selective images from all 22 Mozart operas, as staged in Salzburg, Austria, European Union, in 2006; and selective images from the Mariinsky Theater/Saint Petersburg's touring production of Wagner's Ring (Metropolitan Opera House, 2007).

In the musical bullpen: Osvaldo Golijov's Oceana, and Jack Reilly's Green Spring Suite.

Opera Designer George Tsypin and Composer-Pianist-Author Jack Reilly look beyond both The Decline of Western Civilization and The End of New Music.
