Eric Salzman: Composer, Author, Music Theater Innovator


Big Jim and the Small-Time Investors

The Center for Contemporary Opera (CCO) will produce a workshop version of Big Jim and the Small-Time Investors, a new opera or music-theater work currently in progress. The piece (libretto by Ned Jackson and Eric Salzman, music by Salzman), based on a real story, concerns an L.A. con man who persuades investors to put substantial amounts of money into the development of his invention: a virtual reality headset which enables viewers to imagine that their deepest dreams have come true. The workshop production is scheduled for next fall.
