This drawing appears in the Sunday, November 10 NY Times Arts & Leisure section alongside this article by Anthony Tomassini. Tomassini explores the unanswerable question of all opera (and for that matter, all fiction): what happens to the characters after the story ends?
I had a great time studying some classic operas and speculating about the future of the living (and non-living) characters. I also watched this video for inspiration. Thanks to AD Paul Jean for the gig!
