Join Goulburn Regional Conservatorium Artistic Director Paul Scott-Williams in conversation with The Weight of Light composer James Humberstone and librettist Nigel Featherstone. Goulburn Regional Conservatorium commissioned The Weight of Light in early 2015 and this session will cover the genesis, development, and making of the work. A terrific opportunity to get right inside the composer-librettist working relationship.
