How do you turn a short story from the Bible into an operatic masterpiece?  Few people know better than Charles Kondek, librettist of Hugo Weisgall's final opera, Esther.  In this second in a series on Esther, Dramaturg Cori Ellison sits down with Charles Kondek to learn how he brought Esther to life.

It was interesting to hear Charlie's voice after all these years. We worked together eons ago at Harford Opera Theatre. He directed. I was the costumer.
