The Future of American Transportation

opera 

The Future of American Transportation is an opera written by Jorge Boehringer that was performed in 2000 at Mills College in Oakland, California. 

Due to my many moves, I have little documentation of this work, as is the case with many of my works from this period.  

If any one has anything, however fragmentary, I would be greatful if you would please get in touch!

In the meantime, I can offer this brief audio excerpt of the piece.

I hope to someday recover recordings and video tapes that I have stored in a secret cave near the California coast, and once I have convinced the guardians that dwell there that it is, in fact, really me, return with the precious media.

The was also a later film by the same title, that is both a prequel and a sequel to the opera.  I can only hope that the vultures have not picked completely dry the adats and digital video cassettes that the original media was stuck to.
