More than twenty years in the making, "Vireo: The Spiritual Biography of a Witch’s Accuser" is a twelve-part opera made for a streaming audience. By taking the opera outside of its usual location and production limitations, "Vireo" has shaken up the opera world and invites a new audience into the rich legacy of the art form. Now, take home that experience in a newly re-mastered score. "The CD/DVD is actually like brand new 'Vireo,'" says Bielawa, who is now working on a hybrid film and live experience of "Vireo" at the New School's Philip Glass Institute in New York City.
The work of over 350 musicians are featured in the CD including opera star Deborah Voigt, violinist Jennifer Koh and teenage soprano Rowen Sabala. Listen to the work of Kronos Quartet, the San Francisco Girls Chorus and the Orange County School of the Arts Middle School Choir.
