Genre : Documentary, History, Biography
Year : 2020

Martin Scorsese reveals the story of a single performance in 1826 that forever changed America’s cultural landscape with the introduction of Italian opera to New York City — an event Mozart’s great librettist helped organize. Taking place in Scorsese’s childhood church, this watershed event was lost to history for almost 200 years, but has been rediscovered and the ‘lost oratorio” will be re-staged.
