How Do Artists Collaborate?

Recently, I had the pleasure of organizing and leading a robust conversation among opera-makers as part of the New York Opera Alliance Opera Fest.  I was interested in finding out how composers in particular think about their role in the collaborative process of opera creation.  The conversation, which was held at Hunter College, proved to be animated and at times charged, as the creators on the panel expressed their personal ideas about how to make work together and what great work might look like depending on how it is made.
