Composer, Steve Nieve and playwright, Muriel Teodori collaborate with his rock comrades Elvis Costello, Robert Wyatt and Sting as well as opera stars Barbara Bonney, Amanda Roocroft, Sara Fulgoni, and Nathalie Manfrino, celebrating the voice's sensory, even extra-sensory power, in Welcome To the Voice. This modern opera aims to unite the black and white precision of classical writing with the color of chance and "happy accidents" associated with improvised music. The result is an exquisite and colorful body of work that opens a door to a new frontier in music. The creators of this "work about unlikely encounters" are composer Steve Nieve and librettist Muriel Teodori. Nieve, a classically trained pianist-composer from London, has been a fixture in Elvis Costello's bands since 1977. A solo musician in his own right, Nieve has worked with artists from David Bowie to Anne Sofie von Otter, while Teodori, with whom Nieve has shared his life for over a decade, is a psychoanalyst, author, filmmaker, and playwright.
