Patrick Morganelli's new opera was written to accompany Mario Bava's 1961 cult movie of the same name, a sword-and-sandal film that is wildly operatic in scope. Follow Hercules on his quest to rescue Dianara from eternal enslavement by an evil vampire-master. We'll project the film in its entirety as the new operatic soundtrack is performed live by opera singers and orchestra.
Directed by John Hoomes
Conducted by Kelly Corcoran
Featuring the Nashville Opera Orchestra
