An opera by 12-year-old genius composer Alma Deutscher.

Hailed as “the next Mozart” and recently profiled on 60 Minutes, 12-year-old prodigy Alma Deutscher has set the world of music and ballet on fire. “She’s the real deal,” says Alasdair Neale, former music director of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra…“She’s a lovely little girl, who brings such unalloyed pleasure to what she does,” says Neale. “That spark, that sense of wonderment and happiness in her bones must be preserved and protected at all costs, whatever direction it ends up leading her in.” Last December, the Packard Humanities Institute and Opera San José presented the American premiere of the new opera Cinderella, created by Alma Deutsher at the California Theatre. The performances quickly sold out and gave all the lucky attendees an incredible experience. Now the Packard Humanities Institute presents a filmed version of Deutsher’s Cinderella. This is a wonderful chance to see the performance, which was recorded in the same theatre that you’ll watch the film. This will make a perfect Sunday event for you and your family.
