"Vireo" is a new made-for-TV opera composed by Lisa Bielawa on a libretto by Erik Ehn and directed by Charles Otte. "Vireo" tears down the set limitations of a staged opera, transporting the viewer to locations across the country, including Alcatraz Island, a monastery on the Hudson River, a studio in Downtown LA, an abandoned train station in Oakland, and the California Redwoods. An orchestra in the pit is replaced with world-class musicians from across the country – on camera, inside the action – including Kronos Quartet, violinist Jennifer Koh, San Francisco Girls Chorus, cellist Joshua Roman, Alarm Will Sound, PRISM Saxophone Quartet, American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), soprano Deborah Voigt, and many others. Dive into the world of Vireo through librettos, essays, and production notes. Use the content guide to decode the symbols and learn more about the characters and musicians.
