ASCAP’s “VERSED” Podcast Interviews Du Yun

This past February, Pulitzer Prize winner Du Yun premiered her new opera Sweet Land, an ambitious site-specific work that reflects on the way cultures swallow up, resist and intertwine with one other. Two weeks into Sweet Land’s initial run, the coronavirus epidemic shut down the production – but not before it was captured on video. Listen to Du Yun talk about this fearlessly creative work, how her Chinese upbringing has impacted her career, and the unexpected gifts of the pandemic. PLUS: ASCAP’s Luis Castro tells us about the big news coming out of the ASCAP Latin world this week.
