Sinewy Squeezes

Eugenie came to visit me last weekend from the Bay Area. We have been working on the original opera SNAKEWOMAN for the past few years. Our new idea for the opening is to introduce Snakey dancing through the trees in a moonlit "Oriental" forest.
Snakewoman undulates
Sinews
Winds her way through the stand of trees
Wraps herself ‘round a trunk
And squeezes
Squeezes…
Eugenie will pare the libretto down. I will continue to work on the music.
