Join HGOco in an exploration of 21st-Century opera viewing with a new streaming series themed on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Based on personal experiences, the project shares international stories produced into a standalone, operatic short film. In each episode, Bard aficionados will be able to catch a line direct from Shakespeare's text.
Alma seeks personal fulfillment at a crossroads in her life, and begins a relationship with an artistic soul 16 years her junior. When a shadow looms over their happy ending, Alma guides her lover Luc to his destiny. Based on a true story by Aryana Rose.
