Popular Young Composer to Appear on PBS Special

Linh Shang Meng, creator of the award wining short film Terror and Confusion In a Disturbed Minor, has won a grant from the Merryweather foundation to film a performance of her recently debuted opera, The Forest of Lost Girls, for PBS.

Ms. Meng, who burst onto the art scene two years ago has so far staged two performances of her opera, all to rave reviews. The haunting tale of a traveler’s encounters with a string of ghosts has been described as “part Spoon River Anthology, part Chinese folktale and part feminist critique of the highest caliber.” Copies of the music and certain of the segments are available online.

The performance will be filmed over the winter with a planned air date of next October.
