In a venue without stage, a party transforms into a teenage tragedy. Be My Superstar, an interactive opera that is a reflection on bullying, places the audience at the centre of the performance space, forcing them to confront the everyday experience of violence. This powerful and unforgettable production conceived of and staged by Alexandra Lacroix, with music by Šimon Voseček, is performed by the SPECTRA quartet, Astrid Stockman (soprano), and Logan Lopez Gonzales (countertenor).
