An opera for television by Robert Ashley. Robert Ashley’s television opera about bank robbery, cocktail lounges, geriatric love, adolescent elopement, et al, in the American Midwest. Blue Gene Tyranny was Ashley’s first collaborator - his keyboard melodies and harmonies define the character of Buddy. Tyranny and Ashley performed a chamber version of the piece many times together (including at The Kitchen in early 1978). Shortly after, The Kitchen commissioned PERFECT LIVES as an opera for television, the live version expanded to include richly layered orchestral tapes produced by composer Peter Gordon, and the singing of Jill Kroesen and David Van Tieghem
