Henry Mollicone (born 1946) is an American composer and musical instructor. He currently resides in Saratoga, California.

Career[edit]

Mollicone is known for his one-act operas, including Emperor Norton, Starbird, and The Mask of Evil. One of his most popular works is the one-act chamber opera The Face on the Barroom Floor. Originally commissioned in 1978 for the Central City Opera of Central City, Colorado, The Face on the Barroom Floor was inspired by the painting of the same title on the floor of the Teller House Bar in Central City.[1] Mollicone has also written three full-length operas: Coyote Tales, Hotel Eden, and Gabriel's Daughter. He has written works for both television and film including The Premonition (1976). In addition, he has written pieces for voice, ballet, chorus and other various chamber combinations.

Other works[edit]

As a former faculty member of the Santa Clara University Department of Music, Henry Mollicone also acts as an instructor, adjudicator and collaborator. His greatest musical influences have been Puccini, Verdi, Britten, Bernstein, and Michael Isaacson.
