The Rap Opera Project

June 24, 2017
7:00 pm
MACLA

We are reimagining the art form of opera to encompass one of the primary social musical languages of today - rap. Master beat boxer/ rap artist Carlos Aguirre will work with youth to help tell their stories through a new hybrid art form. The project will draw on socioeconomic issues affecting youth to create a narrative of their experiences living in San Jose. The project will culminate in a workshop presentation of scenes from the work on June 24th, 2017, and will include noted artists Cellista and soprano Alexandra Sessler. This project is funded by Silicon Valley Create's X Factor Grant.
