Gertrude Stein and The Mother of Us All
Following the recent and dramatically innovative production of Virgil Thomson and Gertrude Stein’s The Mother of Us All at the Hudson Opera House, the GSS seeks papers dealing with any aspect of this opera. Papers may discuss the recent production of the opera, any previous productions, and/or the libretto, and possible topics include details and particulars of production; reception; original and/or contemporary socio-historical context; or textual analysis, among other possibilities.
