The Seven Responses Blog: 3 New Posts
Nov. 21 - 
The world responds to Paris and The Crossing sees new meaning in Seven Responses, while sharing the Seven Responses libretto of Anna Thorvaldsdottir: Knees of Jesus by Gudrun Eva Minervudottir.

We step inside the process and take a look at the many artistic and production issues encountered daily when tackling a project of this magnitude.

Donald introduces Santa Ratniece, and Santa herself speaks to us from Riga about her  Seven Responses  libretto,  My soul will sink within me .
