It is not a nice night, especially for anyone preparing to present an opera portraying the life and assassination of the first well-known gay-activist politician in California. The evening is cold and damp. An interview with composer Stewart Wallace and librettist Michael Korie takes place at a quiet restaurant, a place for the harried composer (who is working day and night finishing the laborious orchestration) and librettist to relax. But it is a tense night, anyway.

But the undaunted Gockley's practice of freshening old works has helped his Houston Grand Opera join the ranks of the most prominent of the nation's more than 200 opera companies.
