The Match Girl's Snow Queen

A Musical

Composer Facsimile Edition, 50 min.

Among Larson's theater projects are two with Joe Martin: a musical, The Match Girl's Snow Queen, produced in 1993 at American University in Washington, D.C. by Open Theatre, of which she was a founding member, and incidental music for a stylized production of Strindberg's Ghost Sonata in 1988 at American Showcase theater (published by I.E. Clark). With Michael Oliver, Larson wrote Seven Faces, a theater piece based on the seven stages of grief, that was performed as a song cycle in 1990 by the University of Maryland's 20th Century Ensemble.
