The Angle of Reflection is about a mother's unenviable task of describing light to her blind child. Sabryn, the mother, tries many avenues to somehow prepare herself for this enormous task she will undergo when her son, Evan, is older enough. At the moment, he is still a baby and the piece is shaped like a one-way conversation. The original inspiration was for a story from light itself. What would light say to us? With Leanna's considerable skill at character and conflict, she found the humanity from this very esoteric brief and created a very human drama.
Written as part of the APO Composers' Workshop 2008.
one movement, with 4 dramatic sections as marked in the libretto
