MEROLA OPERA

Back Home: Through the Stage Door

A celebration of the joy of making and performing music together — a joy so many of us have been deprived of during these challenging times. Filmed at San Francisco’s magnificent Herbst Theatre and using classics and lesser known gems of the vocal repertoire as its words and music, the film seeks to capture the many moments, small and large, that comprise opera artists’ lives as they return to creating music together for the stage.
