Gordon, much taken with Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize winning play, Angels in America, chose a monologue as the basis for his Night Flight to San Francisco (111-40236), which he wrote for lyric soprano Renee Fleming. He returns with a monologue from earlier in the play to create Antarctica, a hopeful, more optimistic text, to bookend with the later, final monologue. Also written for Fleming, Antarctica is another beautiful, melodic aria that fans of Gordon's vocal music will enjoy. For advanced performers. Dur.: 5'.
