"Though Philadelphia operagoers are most used to seeing baritone Nathan Gunn on stage, his new role with Opera Company of Philadelphia will be all but invisible: On Wednesday, Gunn was appointed director of the opera company's American Repertoire Council, a role in which he'll give special attention to the opera company's current 10-year commitment to producing an American opera annually.

"In his own career, his future interests include Heggie's Dead Man Walking, Andre Previn's A Streetcar Named Desire as well as such musical theater works as Sweeney Todd and Carousel. 'But at the moment,' he said, 'it seems that my destiny is more to create new roles and to help get new works produced.'"

A recording of Previn's Brief Encounter performed by Houston Grand Opera is scheduled for release as follows:

U.K. release date: April 25, 2011

CD, amazon.co.uk

CD, Brief Encounter, Crotchet Classical Music

U.S. release date: May 24, 2011

CD, amazon.com

Background:

The lengthy list of André Previn's talents includes composition. Brief Encounter, his second opera, is a compassionate, exquisitely touching study of emotional infidelity. This release was recorded live at the opera's world premiere in 2009.

Based on the screenplay by Noël Coward (that became a memorable film directed by David Lean and starring Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson), Brief Encounter stars Elizabeth Futral and Nathan Gunn as lovers whose innate morality makes their rapturous gratitude for one another excruciating, since they are already wed to others. Kim Josephson is moving as Laura's bewildered husband; Patrick Summers conducts with his customary intelligence.

The Wall Street Journal wrote: "Mr. Previn's lush, tonal score supplies a new dimension to this tale, giving a voice to the yearnings of Laura, the ordinary woman who is suddenly catapulted into extraordinary feelings".
