Created as part of our “A Heart’s Home” theme, each video in our “Dear Mom” series consists of a short mini drama that narrates one family’s story, depicted as a letter written to the character’s mother, alongside classic opera repertoire.
Episode 1 of “Dear Mom” features a letter from Natalka, a Czech-American woman, to her mother in the far-away Czech Republic. Natalka is not only separated from her mother, but is also navigating the loneliness she and her young son feel while her husband’s job requires extensive travel. It is the moon that connects them all and gives them hope of reunion.
We are asking our community to share stories, photos, letters, videos or other recordings that represent your expression of Family. Is there a special postcard from a relative? A photograph of your ancestors? A story about a holiday celebration (“One year when...”)? A video of a memorable winning little league game? Please submit your content below.
What will Kentucky Opera do with these submissions? We’ll share these submissions anonymously with our artistic team and use them as inspiration for an original series of short videos featuring opera repertoire that will be posted on our YouTube channel and social media.
