Ruth Margraff is a playwright, librettist, musician and leader of the new opera music/theater movement in America. It would be hard to top the description of her that was given by Erik Ehn on NPR:
Ruth Margraff is a performance artist who looks like Shirley Temple, sounds like Marilyn Monroe and has the mentality of Thomas Merton eating alive William S. Burroughs. She’s got a savage imagination and a very sweet affect.
In this podcast Ruth talks about her collaborations with artists such as Nikos Brisco and Fred Ho, upcoming projects, and how her extensive travels have deeply influenced her work.
