Bellissima Opera's Four Principles...
A short documentary showing snippets of Bellissima Opera's 5-year project with 1,300 Chicago area youth exploring the themes of our shared humanity by bringing music and poetry directly into the students' classrooms and presenting writing and art workshops each student participated in.
The result of this project will be a new opera, Future Perfect, composed by David Shenton, libretto by Christine Steyer inspired by the 1,500 writings and 200 drawings from these workshops.
Future Perfect, produced by Bellissima Opera & Working in Concert, is set to premiere in Chicago from June 24-28, 2020.
This unfinished documentary is created to raise awareness about the project and raise needed funds to premiere the opera.
To make a tax-deductible donation for this project please go to WorkinginConcert.org.
