Created in collaboration with BraveSoul Movement, presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s 'Night Out in the Parks' series

‘The Rosina Project’ is a contemporary adaptation of Rossini’s 19th-century comedy ‘The Barber of Seville’, remixed by Chicago-based Hip-Hop and opera artists who perform an original, female-driven story of empowerment as an immersive, 21st-century house party.

This is an outdoor event, performed on concrete, with no seating provided. Feel free to bring lawn chairs and blankets to the performance.  Performances are weather permitting, with dates, times and locations subject to change.

This project was developed with support from the Pivot Arts Incubator Program, Chicago Dancemakers Forum and The Dance Center at Columbia College Chicago.

This program is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks. Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan. Learn more at www.nightoutintheparks.com
