The Rap Opera Project // San Jose

The Rap Opera Project // San Jose

We are reimagining the art form of opera to encompass one of the primary social musical languages of today – rap.

Master beat boxer/ rap artist Carlos Aguirre will work with youth to help tell their stories through a new hybrid art form. The project will draw on socioeconomic issues affecting youth to create a narrative of their experiences living in San Jose.

The project will culminate in a workshop presentation of scenes from the work on June 24th, 2017, and will include noted artists Cellista and soprano Alexandra Sessler.

This project is funded by Silicon Valley Create’s X Factor Grant.

June 24 2017
