The Classics, New Again
Pleiades | 24 is a video project adapted from a famous collection of twenty-four Baroque tunes which are often assigned as first songs to beginner voice students.
Although most singers regard this collection with a mixture of embarrassment and nostalgia, we believe that the 24 Italian Songs & Arias deserve to be re-considered and re-imagined as a timeless device for telling contemporary women’s stories through both music and film.
This project is comprised of 5 themed seasons. At the conclusion of filming this series The Pleiades Project has showcased the diverse work of 30 female artists, including singers, directors, editors, choreographers, and fine artists.
Our final season was produced in collaboration with IN Series, and originally premiered on IN Vision, The Logan Opera House Without Walls.
