Dum Dee Tweedle
- From the New York Times, May 29, 2004 ('Art & Ideas' section):'Sex and Romanticism? A Composer Dares All' -- by Anne Midgette.[On composer David Del Tredici -- Caption: "whose subjects range from Alice to eros"]."[Del Tradici's] maverick trajectory led him from atonality to tonality, unheard-of in the 1970's, when he began a 20-year focus on setting texts from Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" ... The way Mr. Del Tredici deals with homosexuality in his art is perfectly in line with the antic, over-the-top joie de vivre that makes his "Alice" pieces such a delight. ... He has always enjoyed (in every sense) a certain notoriety, at least since introducing tonality into his work in "Final Alice" (the mid-70s). ... "Dum Dee Tweedle" [is] an exhilarating and wonderfully unconventional opera based on more 'Alice' texts."
