Vireo | KCET
Witches. Wisdom. Wonder. Vireo is an opera created for TV and online broadcast that considers the usage of "female hysteria" throughout the decades. The multi-episode production was composed by Lisa Bielawa on a libretto by Erik Ehn and directed by Charles Otte, featuring soprano Rowen Sabala. "Vireo" is an artist residency project of Grand Central Art Center (GCAC), director/chief curator John Spiak. In 2015, "Vireo" was the recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Multimedia Award.
Vireo is currently in production. In Spring 2017, KCET will release the entire season of Vireo all at once for free, on-demand streaming, which is a first for the network.
