A film by André Hörmann | 2019 | RBB
Arshan is 10 years old and lives in a small, sleepy hippie village not far from Los Angeles. He wants to become a singer, a real opera singer. For three years now, Arshan has been taking part in the Youth Opera Camp, a camp founded by the New York opera singer Rebecca Comerford. She immediately noticed that Arshan is special. Not only does he have almost perfect pitch, he also has a very distinctive and unique voice. But Arshan has so much to do, he barely has any time to practice. Chopping firewood, milking the goats, feeding the cows, watering the large fruit garden and taking care of his small sisters together with his two brothers…This year Arshan would love to get the main part in the upcoming opera production of the Ojai Youth Opera. It would be amazing, if Arshan were to find himself in the spotlight singing for the entire village. And should the piece be successful, Rebecca plans a tour through California, maybe even through the entire USA.This would be a dream come true for Arshan!
