When author Amy Tan spoke at TED2008 this spring, she was putting the final touches on a brand-new project: the libretto for an opera based on her novel The Bonesetter’s Daughter. The opera, with music by Stewart Wallace, opened this weekend in San Francisco. You can hear excerpts from The Bonesetter’s Daughter on the New York Times‘ website.
