  1. Hi Kim,

    I love your work. I am a father now and my son and I watch many of the shows you have written for either on Sprout or on Netflix. My wife and I own Lagniappe Theatre Company in Alexandria, LA. We work at several schools and would like to mount “All the Great Operas in 10 Minutes” with our students playing all the characters for their end of the year performance for their parents and friends. Is there a script available? We could certainly just transcribe it from the video, but we wanted to see if there was a script available and to ask permission to perform the piece. Thank you so much.

    • Kim

      Hi Ross – Thank you! So nice to hear from someone who still remembers that little film. I will get in touch with you via email, but the short answer re. permission to perform is “YES! Absolutely!” I mean, as long as you send photos or something. I am thrilled to pieces you want to do this!

    I saw your opera short about 20 years ago on PBS. I’ve never forgotten it. Thank the gods (and the internet) I was able to find it and you.

    • Kim

      Aw thanks, that’s sweet! I’m amazed you still remember my film, it does seem so very long ago. Thanks for hunting me down, your comment really made my day!

    Dear Kim,
    I saw your opera short on Bravo many years ago and have been searching for it ever since. Little did I know when I first saw it that I would get a job playing in an opera orchestra. Every single time I play one of the shows you presented, I hear your hilarious commentary and crack up. Now that I’ve found it again, I can share it with my friends in the group. You’ve given me something I’ve always treasured and I want to say thanks. Well done!
    With admiration,
    Molly

      Hello Molly,
      Thank you so much for your lovely message! I made that film so long ago, it seems like in another lifetime, and it’s really wonderful to hear from people who still remember it! I would like to send you a little something, if you send me your mailing address in an email? Email me here.
      Thanks again,
      Kim

        Hi Kim! I first saw your “All the Great Operas” short on Bravo in the 90s, as a teenager. I’m now middle-aged and am preparing to teach a class based on it to a group of unschoolers starting tomorrow. I’ve been listening to these operas for weeks and my children are terribly annoyed by it. Anyway, thanks! I have loved this and remembered it all these years. My girlfriend studied opera in college and I’ve actually seen a few of them live because of her. I sort of love the pop-culture shorthand methodology of this education.

        • Kim

          Thanks Anna! I’m glad people still remember that little film! Good luck with your teaching, so great that you’re passing on the operatic torch to a new generation! All the best and thanks again for you kind words, it really means a lot to me.
