Let’s Make A Sandwich!
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Let’s Make A Sandwich began in 2014 as an idea to showcase the creative process. By asking two composers to write short operas based upon the same source material, and having two different directors stage each opera, LMAS highlights the blurred line defining where the composer’s work ends and the creative team’s begins.
