Deseret News: Writing for a ‘Little Prince’ — how this Salt Lake 11-year-old gets the royal treatment in Utah Opera premiere
SALT LAKE CITY — A five-minute walk from his home in London’s Notting Hill district takes Nicholas Wright to an incredibly quiet room.
“It is absolutely the quietest room you’ve ever been in in your life,” Wright recently told the Deseret News from his London home.
The room is on a busy road, but the double walls keep out the city noise. In that room is a grand piano, where Academy Award-winning composer Rachel Portman often sits and dreams up dramatic film scores like the ones for “Chocolat” and “The Cider House Rules.”
