Ira hayes! That should be a fascinating treatment. The picture accompanying your post speaks volumes about the psychology of the man.

Thanks John. I agree about the photo. And yes, an Ira Hayes opera is an idea whose time has come. Let's hope that it is a powerful, beautiful, and successful contemporary opera.
