American Lyric Theater, whose Composer Librettist Development Program provides training and mentoring for composers and librettists, this weekend is giving the public a look at three of its new works in development at its annual InsightALT Festival. This Saturday (2/22 at 7 pm), A Tempo host Rachel Katz speaks with ALT founder Larry Edelson about ALT, its mission and the festival's readings, and librettist E.M. (Ellen) Lewis, who worked with composer Evan Meier on "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Fallen Giant", one of the operas that will be featured in the festival.
