The Way to Andina

PREMIERE: World  DIRECTOR: Arlen Parsa  COUNTRY: United States
WHERE: 1st Ward  /   WHEN: Sunday, April 23 @ 3:00 PM  /  TICKETS: $10.00
Feature Documentary  ( 70 min )

Andina is the 80-year-old opera written by immigrant composer Eustasio Rosales. The score was never performed until Arlen Parsa, Rosales’ great-grandson, discovered the work and began researching composer’s story. Now he's determined to fulfill his family legacy and resurrect the opera, decades after it was first written.

When Arlen discovers his Colombian great-grandfather left behind a long lost opera that's never been performed, he knows what he has to do... He just doesn't know how to do it. Despite having zero of experience with opera, and not even speaking Spanish, he takes a leap of faith.

But after promising his entire family that the 80 year old Latin music will finally get a world premiere, is he in over his head?

The Way to Andina is a 70 minute humorous personal adventure documentary chronicles the journey from the moment Arlen sees the opera through rehearsals, history, a touching family backstory, and the eventual world premiere. This project incorporates music, video, and live opera performance.
