Title Sing opera! : the opera "Keepers of the night" / an original opera by Peter Ash and Donald Sturrock
Published Santa Monica, CA : American Film Foundation, 2007


Description 1 online resource (94 min.)
Summary Keepers of the Night, an original family opera that had its world premiere in Los Angeles in 2007, follows the adventures of four children who camp out on the edge of a forest on Midsummer's Night. As darkness falls, they come under the magical spell of the moon Selene, who seeks revenge on her former lover, Ozalid the owl. Ozalid presides over the forest creatures' annual song contest, in which the clash between democracy and aristocracy, nature and city, and group and individual all interplay. As this whimsical story of mistaken identity and vocal showmanship unfolds, the notions of "winning" and "losing" are held up to gentle comic scrutiny. Featuring a case of 65 children singers from the world-renowns Los Angeles Children's Chorus, Keepers of the Night also includes Soprano Lynette Tapia, Baritone Malcolm MacKenzie, Mezzo Soprano Suzanna Guzman and Soprano Lauren Libaw
