Colfax Avenue: Composer, conductor, opera educator, writer, and lecturer Thomas Holliday will discuss and sign his new book Falling Up: The Days and Nights of Carlisle Floyd, The Authorized Biography (Syracuse University Press). A modern Renaissance man, Carlisle Floyd is our greatest living opera composer and librettist, a trained concert pianist, a master stage director, and a teacher. In Falling Up, Holliday offers an intimate account of the life that shaped the words and music. With more than forty photographs, the detailed evolution of Floyd’s fourteen operas, and in-depth analysis of his nonoperatic works, Falling Up is essential reading for opera fans and professionals alike, a book that moves, informs, and entertains. Colorado artist Jesse Guess, who contributed the portrait of Mr. Floyd to this book, will join us at this event. Can’t make it to the signing?
