Robert Ashley is best known for his pioneering work in new forms of opera, electronics and multimedia composition. His most famous work Perfect Lives, an opera conceived of for television is widely considered the precursor to music television.

Thomas Buckner, Ashley's closest friend and collaborator, presents a program of pieces written especially for him by Ashley in their 30+ years of working together. Works include stand-alone pieces such as World War III, Just the Highlights, as well as completely re-conceived concert versions of arias from other operas such as The Producer Speaks. For this multimedia performance Thomas Buckner is joined by guest performers from the composition department.
