A multimedia production about Jesus and His disciples. This inspired Opera was written in 1986 as a commission for Opera Brava's educational work. Its criteria were that it should be based on the Bible, contain writing for groups of children and parts for professional soloists. The Opera is based on the writings of Luke, and there are plenty of melodies for the children and beautiful, evocative orchestral writing. 500 children, 10 opera singers, an actor and a full orchestra. All professional, many working at the top their professions come together.Author Jill Townsend. Company Opera Brava. Conductor Keith Willis.
