Theodore Morrison


Theodore Morrison began composing at age 42, more than twenty years after he was firmly established as a conductor. Over the past three decades he has composed an epic choral symphony, other large works for voices and orchestra, and many shorter pieces in several genres.




The Santa Fe Opera and Opera Philadelphia have commissioned Theodore Morrison and the eminent English stage director John Cox to create OSCAR, an opera in two acts on the subject of Oscar Wilde’s trial and imprisonment, starring countertenor David Daniels.
