Our Season begins in the Winter quarter with a recently commissioned children’s opera by Opera Parallèle; My Head is Full of Colors by Chris Pratorius (UCSC faculty).
Maria awakes one morning to find her normally plain brown hair replaced by all the colors of the rainbow! Her head is "full of colors," and on this day she draws and paints like never before. Each day she wakes up with something unexpected on her head and experiences the world in new and different ways. Her father welcomes her surprising appearance with loving arms and fascinated observation. My Head is Full of Colors is a life affirming self esteem lesson that ignites imagination and reflects the joys of life and learning.
This will be the first performance of a new version for adult chorus and soloists to be performed for local children. This performance will be free to the public.
