In eight years, he was written librettos for nine operatic works, including: Volpone (Wolf Trap Foundation for the Arts, music by John Musto); Later the Same Evening (National Gallery of Art/University of Maryland, Manhattan School of Music, Glimmerglass Festival, music by Musto), Bastianello and Lucrezia (New York Festival of Song, music by Musto and William Bolcom); The Inspector (Wolf Trap Opera. Boston Lyric Opera, music by Musto), Rappahannock County (Virginia Opera, Virginia Arts Festival, University of Texas Performing Arts Center, music by Ricky Ian Gordon), and Silent Night (Minnesota Opera, music by Kevin Puts), which was awarded the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in Music.   As a lyricist, Mark penned all of the lyrics for Songs from an Unmade Bed, a theatrical song cycle with music by 18 composers including Jake Heggie and Duncan Sheik (New York Theatre Workshop). The show has since been produced in many venues around the world.
