At Circle Repertory Company Gerald premiered ORPHEUS IN LOVE, an opera with a libretto by Craig Lucas, in which Orpheus is a viola teacher in a community college, and Eurydice is his pupil. Gerald is a protégé of Virgil Thomson and a long-time resident of the Chelsea Hotel in New York. Wave Theory Records released in 2021 the film score for 3WOMEN.
