Stephen King's Operatic Side: Adapting the Horror Writer for the Opera

Poet J. D. McClatchy enjoyed the process of adapting Stephen King's Dolores Claiborne for the opera stage.

“It's interesting material, and it's a challenge,” said McClatchy, who teaches English at Yale. “That's what any writer likes most — it calls for skills you didn't know you had.”

McClatchy will be talking with the San Francisco Chronicle's David Wiegand about the challenges of making Dolores Claiborne into an opera at a Litquake event on Monday, Sept. 9.
