Thomas Adkins, casting dir.
Casting singers for opera-oratorio, "The Canticle of the Black Madonna." Project description: "Set in Louisiana in 2010, this potent story chronicles the journey of an American soldier returning from Afghanistan with PTSD as he struggles with his shattered soul, his strained marriage, and the crumbling economy in the wake of the Gulf Oil Spill, while his wife faces courageous sacrifices to stand by the man she loves amidst an ecological disaster which radically changes their lives. Through a rich combination of modern opera and ancient oratorio, The Canticle of the Black Madonna reveals the healing power of their encounter with an ancient, primal force of divine love, represented by the Black Madonna, which transforms them both forever and touches all who witness it."
