San Diego OperaTalk! with Nick Reveles: Vanessa

11/15/2004; 28 minutes

Inspired by a novel by Isak Dinesen (Out of Africa), Samuel Barber's Vanessa was snubbed by "modern" composers. But its love story and lush, romantic music made it an instant hit with audiences and won Barber the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Nicolas Reveles hosts an intimate portrait of the opera and its creator.
