Biography

Stewart Wallace was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but grew up in Texas. The radical mix of jazz, blues, gospel, Tejano, rock and classical music there profoundly influenced him. He played in a rock and roll band and sang as a cantor in the synagogue. For his thesis at the University of Texas at Austin, he wrote his first opera, though he was studying literature and philosophy, not music; and at 28 years old, he had his first major premiere Where's Dick? at Houston Grand Opera. This was the beginning of his fruitful and ongoing collaboration with librettist Michael Korie. Like many subsequent Wallace works, Where's Dick? wrestles with the myth of America and its politics, in this case seen through a series of comic book grotesques doing vaudeville turns.

Now forty-four years old, the versatile composer has written music in every genre with performances throughout the world.
