Lost Opera: The Way to Andina

Lost Opera: The Way to Andina

episode

This local documentary tells the story of the discovery of a long-lost opera written by a pioneering Colombian American immigrant composer -- and the challenges of mounting the show at Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre 80 years after it was written. Spearheaded by the composer's great-grandson who knows nothing about opera, the film has audiences alternately laughing and crying when they finally hear the astonishing contents of a musical time capsule.
