Mike skillfully writes program notes that not only provide thoughtful insights into a work but also pepper in meaningful pop culture or contemporary references — anything from The Searchers' "Love Potion No. 9" for L'elisir d'amore or comparing the Broadway musical Dreamgirls to Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana — to familiarize less-seasoned patrons with an opera while helping aficionados see something new in a beloved work.
Equally at home in writing for a canonical opera or a world premiere, Mike will work with you on creating an angle that will work for your audiences and timeline.
