Witchcraft... psychoanalysis… fantasy... for generations, visionary young girls have inspired fascination and fear. Enter the world of Vireo, a gifted teenage girl who finds herself slipping through time between centuries past and present.
From award-winning composer Lisa Bielawa, visionary director Charlie Otte, and acclaimed librettist Erik Ehn, this groundbreaking episodic opera weaves a tale of witches, doctors, priests and one girl’s journey of self discovery. Filmed in 12 parts, Vireo's story takes viewers to iconic locations across the country and features performances by world renowned musicians Kronos Quartet, violinist Jennifer Koh, soprano Deborah Voigt and many more.
Join our hero on her quest to find her true voice, as Artbound presents, Vireo: The Spiritual Biography of a Witch’s Accuser.
