Fresno Grand Opera is trying something completely different for its next production. “A Life in 4 Seasons” is a multimedia musical experience featuring Vivaldi’s famed music paired with an original film. Thi Nguyen, the opera’s associate artistic director, wrote the screenplay for the film, which was directed by Long Beach filmmaker Cooper Sy Blumenthal and features a narrative about a couple’s relationship. The images are heavily geared toward the artistic, with the intention of augmenting the musical experience. Nguyen will play solo violin in “The Four Seasons” backed by a chamber orchestra.
