dc.description.abstractLove at Second sight is a twenty-five-minute chamber opera in two scenes for soprano, tenor, baritone, and piano. The libretto was written by theorist Dr. Robert Hatten and is loosely based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald called "Love in the Night." Composing an opera poses many significant challenges, including the crafting of the right music to support the drama, writing idiomatically for the voice, and composing in a number of styles. The first chapter of this treatise discusses my reasons for writing an opera, the creation of the libretto, challenges inherent in the medium, and some influential works that helped shape the work. The second chapter is a complete scene-by-scene analysis along with some information on the major motives and harmonic language used throughout the work.en
