Artist Aquil Virani collaborates with Toronto-based Amplified Opera

At a series of performances highlighting marginalized voices in the broader opera community, Amplified Opera asked participants what stories they wanted to see amplified.

Artist Aquil Virani remixed these participant writings into a series of multimedia artworks featuring portrait paintings of the three vocal performers of each night. The short text submissions were grouped thematically: We belong here; This is my voice; and Hear me out. Watch the video to learn more. See the “Microphone” art book in PDF format here.
