Jorge Sosa Bio

I am a Mexican born composer currently living in New York. I am passionate about opera and have dedicated a considerable amount of my recent work to the genre. I am a bilingual composer equally at home writing in English or Spanish. In 2019 I premiered my first fully staged opera "I Am A Dreamer Who No Longer Dreams" with libretto by Cerise Jacobs and commissioned by White Snake Projects. In 2016 my first full length opera "La Reina" with libretto by Laura Sosa and commissioned by ALT received an orchestral workshop at the PROTOTYPE Festival. I am currently working on two operas commissioned by White Snake Projects with librettos by Cerise Jacobs"Samir's Celebration" (based on the real life story of Samir, a Somali immigrant) and "Monkey" a Puppet Opera based on an ancient Chinese legend, with premieres scheduled in Boston in 2020 and 2021 respectively.

"Sosa’s composition is well-balanced to the story’s narrative, and his vocal writing aroused strong emotional peaks and valleys, magnified by the characters’ impassioned performances. "
