Pacific Opera Theatre presents the premiere of "Belonging," a pastiche opera film addressing homelessness in our community. Under guidance of guest director Ann Baltz, our students engaged in a different approach to actor training and had a chance to work on a project with social relevance, specifically the issue of homelessness in California and in particular in the Central Valley.
The film will premiere online on April 22 at 7:30 p.m.
Master opera practitioner and renowned opera educator Baltz guided the students through the creation of this devised piece of theatre—creating characters, writing scenes and ultimately setting up the filming of the work. The film was edited and produced by nationally recognized creative director of Gotham Studios, Peter Nissen.
