Save the Dates!

The back page of the Great Gatsby program has the exciting news that Mark Adamo's Lysistrata will be performed by Ensemble Parallele in February, 2013. I saw Lysistrata in NYC in August, 2006, when it was quite new. It is funny, touching, dramatically effective, beautifully put together, has some lovely music; I think it was the best new American opera of 2005, actually.

How many new American operas were there in 2005?

The other famous one was Doctor Atomic, but I assume there were others.
