Do You Play Suona or Chinese-Style Percussion?

Or do you know someone who does?

If so, San Francisco Opera wants you for The Bonesetter's Daughter, Stewart Wallace's new opera, which is based on Amy Tan's novel of the same name, and for which Tan is writing the libretto.

The Opera is holding auditions in a couple of weeks, on February 28 and 29 and March 1, by appointment only. Full details are in the press release, which is available in both English and Chinese.

For a moment I thought that said "and for which I'm writing the libretto," and thought you had achieved fame and fortune.

Ha! I wish.

I've never written either fiction or a play, but I'd love to take a shot at a libretto some day.
