The very first Vegetable Puppet Opera Movie (that we know of), Verdi by Vegetables is a feature-length film that explores Giuseppe “Joe Green” Verdi’s life, loves, and losses in a time of Italian political upheaval and his music’s profound impact on opera history. Go on a tour through Verdi’s entire catalog of works, interwoven with Verdi’s life story, all beautifully performed by… over 100 puppets made of produce. Voiced by 38 of our favorite Resonance Works artists from their own homes across the country, this pandemic creation is a hilarious madcap journey through opera and the produce section, appealing to opera aficionados, novices, and vegetarians alike!

Composer Peter Hilliard and Librettist Matt Boresi are nationally recognized writers of operas specializing in timely, often comic, audience accessible opera. Their operas, including The Last American Hammer, Blue Viola, The Filthy Habit, and others, have been produced by Pittsburgh Opera, UrbanArias, Opera Memphis, Carnegie Mellon Opera, Lyric Opera of the North, Manhattan Opera Theatre, The Tanglewood Institute, Beth Morrison Projects, and many others. Upcoming works include “Verdi by Vegetables” with Resonance Works and projects with the San Francisco Girls Chorus and Lyric Theatre @ Illinois. Hilliard and Boresi met and began working together in the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at NYU in 2000.
