For a handful of select local media, it was a fascinating inside look at the process (and the ticking clock) that accompanies a world premiere.
Renowned composer Jake Heggie -- hard at work on orchestrations for “Moby-Dick,” which will have its world premiere at the Dallas Opera in late April -- is back in Dallas and busy as can be.

More details in this report from longtime classical music writer and critic Olin Chism for KERA’s Art and Seek blog.
