    Silent Light is a new Opera based on the film Stellet Licht by Carlos Reygadas.

    Music by Paola Prestini
    Libretto by Royce Vavrek
    Stage Direction, Scenic and Costume Design by Thaddeus Strassberger
    Lighting Design by Jason Hand

    Set within a Mennonite community in northern Mexico, the opera follows a pious husband and father, Johan, who’s strongly held spiritual obligation to his marriage, family and community is put to the test when he falls in love with another woman from his faith. Silent Light provides a glimpse of a society that is often misunderstood and simplified by people outside of the faith and lifestyle, presenting commonalities of human experience.
