Neither is the only opera by Morton Feldman, dating from 1977. The libretto consists of a 16-line poem by Samuel Beckett. Beckett and Feldman had met in Berlin in 1976, with plans for a collaboration for Rome Opera. Beckett told Feldman that he himself did not like opera, and Feldman had agreed with Beckett's sentiment.
The work is for a soprano soloist and chamber orchestra. It could more properly be called a monodrama, but given Feldman's own disdain for opera, it can be described as an anti-opera.
