Making Morning Star

Academy Award–nominated filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar present engaging documentary about the creation of a new opera, Morning Star. This intimate look into the artistic process introduces composer Ricky Ian Gordon as he attempts to bring 11 years of ideation to life. With the help of librettist William M. Hoffman and stage director Ron Daniels, conservatory students fill out a 10-day workshop cast with hopes of turning a fragmented work into full-blown operatic magic. Artists and admirers alike will take away a new appreciation for the joys and challenges of process and creation. —Neha Talreja
