Critics acclaim dumbing up with Isabelle Eberhardt


Great to see such a positive critical reaction in New York to Missy Mazzoli's new multi-media opera 'Song From the Uproar, the Lives and Deaths of Isabelle Eberhardt'. Isabelle had many links with Marseille, which is the European Capital of Culture in 2013. So I am hoping that Song from the Uproar may make it across the Atlantic next year if the commercial planets align. Dumbing up is the next big thing and more on Isabelle's French connection here.
