Stefan Weisman

Composer Stefan Weisman’s music has range, earning ardent praise from opera critics as “personal, moody and skillfully wrought” (New York Times) and “a touching tour de force” (New York Magazine) as well as delighting the host of The Wendy Williams Show who called “Twinkie,” his satirical art song, “Fabulous!” His opera Darkling, commissioned by American Opera Projects, was included in the Guggenheim Museum’s Works & Process series, premiered to acclaim in New York, and toured Europe. It was released by Albany Records. His one-act opera Fade premiered in London and had successful performances in Philadelphia, San Francisco and Brooklyn. The Scarlet Ibis debuted in New York’s acclaimed Prototype festival, co-produced by HERE and Beth Morrison Projects. The New York Times praised The Scarlet Ibis as an “outstanding new chamber musical” and The Wall Street Journal called it “subtly subversive, and its production groundbreaking.”
