the web opera
A Genre-Bending Experience
official selection at TWENTY NINE Film Festivals!
Award-winning composer MICHAEL ROTH, new music advocate and theatre veteran,
has assembled a team of progressive artists, performers, and musicians
to create something completely new -
THE WEB OPERA
- a new music/film/opera experience -
to fight against cyberbullying and cyber abuse.
When a young man installs a webcam, he sets off a chain of events
that forever changes the lives of those around him.
