Trinity Church Wall Street continues its annual partnership with Prototype Festival in developing major new contemporary operas. This year’s production is a new opera Trade by Irish composer Emma O’Halloran featuring NOVUS NY and Julian Wachner as music director.

Trinity is proud to present five staged performances in St. Paul’s Chapel of the “fusion oratorio” Considering Matthew Shepard, composed by Craig Hella Johnson.  Johnson has said he created the oratorio as “a space for reflection, consideration, and unity around [Shepard’s] life and legacy.” Several LGBTQ+ community and educational events will be scheduled surrounding the performances in collaboration with Trinity’s Pride 365 program, which focuses on LGBTQ+ advocacy throughout the year.

Matt Shepard and his story have led me on an inspiring, challenging, and deeply meaningful journey that I continue to this day. In composing Considering Matthew Shepard, I wanted to create, within a musical framework, a space for reflection, consideration, and unity around his life and legacy.

Craig Hella Johnson, composer
