Cambridge: A recording of “Earth” from Vera Causa Opera’s Community Opera Fest is now available
Sunday, September 27, 2020
A collaboration between creative minds in the community, Earth was performed and recorded live by Vera Causa Opera orchestra and performers during physically-distanced sessions in August/September 2020.
The audio recording is now available to enjoy!
Earth tells the tale of a planet in pain, and brings up topics surrounding climate change with a multi-dimensional lens.
The opera personifies the Earth, Moon, Sun, and Stars, and uses them as means for a conversation about responsibility, adaptability, and change.
