Dana Gioia brings us into the powerful darkness of his opera libretto Nosferatu, and along the way guides us through the place of monstrous and gothic stories within the literary tradition, and even touches on the truth of evil itself. Gioia is an internationally acclaimed poet, writer, and editor, as well as former California Poet laureate and Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.
