As America's most-produced living opera librettist, his works include four pieces with composer Philip Glass, as well as AINADAMAR (Osvaldo Golijov - winner of two 2007 Grammy Awards), THE SILVER RIVER (Bright Sheng) and ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Unsuk Chin). His first play, FOB, premiered in his lounge of his dormitory at Stanford University. Hwang penned the feature films M.

This play explores the legacy of the colonization of East Asia through the Orientalist fantasy of Madam Butterfly. Ideas of sexuality and gender are also turned on their head in this brutal takedown of hegemonic masculinity.
