Scripts by James Reaney

Book Description

James Reaney is one of Canada's favourite poets and playwrights; at the intersection of his dramatic and poetic talents is Scripts, a collection of musical writings. There are nine complete works here, including the chamber opera Night-blooming Cereus, the poetry/music collage (and Governor General's Award winner) Twelve Letters to a Small Town, the Canada Dot, Canada Dash trilogy and operas Shivaree, Taptoo! and Serinette. Many of these pieces have been published individually, but none are in print, and they have never been amassed.
