Described as a “hip-hopera,” The Rosina Project is a collaboration between Chicago Fringe Opera and BraveSoul Movement, who join forces to present an electric re-imagining of Rossini’s opera The Barber of Seville. This contemporary adaptation mixes hip-hop MCs, opera singers and street-dance artists with a live DJ and beatboxer to perform an original story of female empowerment and interracial friendship as an immersive house party.
Originally developed in the 2018 Pivot Arts Incubator Program at Loyola University.
Opening Night of the Pivot Arts Festival is generously supported by Elizabeth White.
