Good things come to operas that wait, at least sometimes. Lewis Spratlan’s Life is a Dream, written in the late 1970s, went unperformed when its commissioning organisation folded. Two decades later Act Two was performed in concert, with the surprising result that it won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for music. Fast forward one more decade and Life is a Dream has its world premiere at America’s leading summertime opera venue, the Santa Fe Opera.
