a GRAMMY® Nomination for BLACK LODGE!

Black Lodge has been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in the Best Opera Recording category, alongside the Metropolitan Opera’s recording of the Blanchard/Christofer Champion and BMOP’s recording of the Corigliano/Adamo The Lord of Cries. A multi-layered modern opera, Black Lodge draws on the complex mythologies surrounding such artists as William S. Burroughs (Naked Lunch), David Lynch (Twin Peaks), and others. With a libretto by celebrated poet Anne Waldman and performances by Timur and the Dime Museum and Isaura String Quartet, Black Lodge was recorded remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth served as executive producer for the project, alongside co-producers Andrew McKenna Lee, Beth Morrison, and Little himself–his second nomination. The work was premiered by Beth Morrison Projects at Opera Philadelphia, with a soundtrack later released on Cantaloupe Music. Listen to the album here.
