Notes and Editorial Reviews

My chamber opera 'William James's Varieties of Religious Experience' takes various examples from James's book/lecture and creates a narrative out of some of the more captivating cases. Some of the examples cited are mystic, others are based on faith. The opera ends with Leo Tolstoy, the great Russian novelist, telling his tale of changing reality, and his belief in the super natural. -- Gene Pritsker My chamber opera 'William James's Varieties of Religious Experience' takes various examples from James's book/lecture and creates a narrative out of some of the more captivating cases.
