Sergey Khalikulov, who we recently introduced to readers, will be starring as the Father in the new children's opera My Head is Full of Colors. San Francisco's innovative young company Opera Parallèle will present the work free to the public on Saturday, November 1st at the Koret Auditorium at San Francisco's Main Public Library.
The opera, with music by Chris Pratorius and words by Nicole Paiement, is based on author Catherine Friend’s children’s book. Opera Parallèle has been committed to presenting operas with young performers, with an audience of children and families in mind. Khalikulov will be joined by soprano Carolyn Bacon in the story of a young girl who discovers her own meaning by engaging in the world around her is the kind of self-affirming discovery through artistic engagement.
Seating will be on a first come, first serve basis.
