Anne LeBaron

California Institute of the Arts
Composer, Discovery Grant recipient 2015
Greater Los Angeles Area
Anne LeBaron’s operas celebrate legendary figures spanning centuries: “Pope Joan” (the controversial female pope who reigned in the ninth century); “The E. & O. Line” (Eurydice as a blues singer); “Crescent City” (Marie Laveau); “Sucktion” (the American Housewife and her vacuum cleaner); and “Croak - The Last Frog” (Cassandra as the lone surviving frog on earth). Her current opera-in-progress, “Huxley’s Last Trip,” (formerly “LSD: The Opera”) was awarded one of the first Discovery Grants from Opera America and performed in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Times exclaims: “she expands consciousness with an expanded orchestra, incorporating Harry Partch’s gorgeously weird microtonal instruments into the orchestra in a way no one has thought of before.” Another project underway, “This Lingering Life,” marks a new collaboration with librettists Chiori Miyagawa and Mark Campbell. Populated by characters such as the Woman with Tragic Hair, the opera retells, updates, and merges the stories of five classic Noh plays.
