“Speranza” – HOPE – A Collaboration of the Performing Arts

Speranza” – HOPE – an encore performance with a collaboration of the Atlanta Ballet, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and The Atlanta Opera. 

In an unprecedented collaborative effort, these three Atlanta performing arts institutions have united their creative genius to create a performance piece that truly defines the quality every person affected by cancer must call on – a sense of hope. Aptly titled “Speranza” (Italian for “Hope”), this collaborative piece began as a musical elegy composed by Juan R. Ramírez, principal violinist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and founder & artistic director of Atlanta Virtuosi Foundation, Inc. To expand on and deepen the experience of this elegy, an Italian operatic libretto was composed by Soprano Isabella Baer de Cortes and will be performed by Megan Mashburn Soprano with The Atlanta Opera, and choreography was added by Armando Luna, choreographer and principal teacher at Atlanta Ballet. Speranza will once again be performed at the fourth annual ArtCAN fundraising gala, which supports groundbreaking pancreatic cancer research at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and Emory University School of Medicine. While nothing can prepare a family for cancer, hope can be a shelter in the storm.

Meet the creators and artists who have volunteered their time to bring the world premiere of SPERANZA to life!!
