All about his unfinished opera Valentine’s Day here.
Update:The Boom Is Over. Long Live the Art!

The best art was subversive, but in very un-’60s, nonideological ways. When, at midnight, you heard Klaus Nomi, with his bee-stung black lips and robot hair, channeling Maria Callas at the Mudd Club, you knew you were in the presence of a genius deviant whose very life was a political act. (NYtimes – Holland Cutter)
