After only four days together, the Summer Youth Intensive participants are putting the final touches on their original opera entitled Cyber: The Techno Opera. The participants chose to focus their story on the issue of bullying and technology’s impact on bullying over time. The premiere performance will take place on Friday, July 13, at the Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Opera Centre.

Jennifer Lin is back with another video blog on the Summer Youth Intensive program. With set and costume creation well underway, the SYI participants are putting the final touches on their compositions and choreography in preparation for the world premiere of their opera on Friday. Join Jennifer, the SYI Video Blogger, as she shows us an inside look into the opera creation process.
After only two days, the participants of the Summer Youth Intensive have already written the libretto and started composing the music for their very own opera. They're also designing the sets and costumes to go with it. They’ve chosen to centre their opera on the theme of cyber-bullying and technology’s impact on modern day communication.
In her latest SYI Video Blog, Jennifer Lin gives us a sneak peek at the composition and design process at SYI.
