Tod Machover

Tod Machover

Tod Machover’s first opera (he has now composed many more groundbreaking ones) was VALIS, and it made history when it premiered for the 10th Anniversary of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris in December 1987. 

VALIS toured the U.S., Europe and Asia and has been recorded on a still-best-selling CD, but it has not received a new live production for over 20 years.

That changes in September 2023! Machover is working with Jay Scheib (head of MIT’s Theater Department and currently directing the new production of Wagner’s Parsifal at the prestigious Bayreuth Festival) to create a bold new production of VALIS.
