In this operatic psychological thriller, a lonely girl is torn between reality and the supernatural as she risks everything for freedom and acceptance.  Centered on a young albino teenager —whose overprotective father dyes her hair dark blue and keeps her confined in the family palace—The Little Blue One is a bold, new English-language opera based on the Italian folktale "Azzurina."  Composer Dominick DiOrio and librettist Meghan Guidry join forces for this dark update of a classic tale of childhood, identity, and desire from the award-winning Juventas New Music Ensemble.

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours with one intermission.
