Excerpts of both operas were performed at the NOA convention in New York City in January 1999. Act I, EVE'S ODDS, was selected as the winner of the NOA competition and was performed in its entirety at the NOA convention in Cincinnati in February 2000. This work was formerly known as A TRIUMPH OF WOMEN.
