For the past few months, Patrick has been writing the music for his new opera Gobbolino the Witch’s Cat and he’s just completed the Vocal Score.

With a libretto by Patrick’s brother Andrew and opera producer Genevieve Raghu based on the brilliant book by Ursula Moray Williams, it’s a beautiful story about Gobbolino who doesn’t want to be a witch’s cat.  He wants to be an ordinary kitchen cat, and sit by the fire, catch mice and watch the baby.  So while his sister, Sootica, learns how to ride a broomstick and turn mice into toads, Gobbolino sets out to find a family to care for him and a home of his own.
