Hope Operas introduced new works that raised money for local nonprofits/charities. They brought together dozens of local artists who created five new works. The shows were presented in a serial format. On the first night, the audience saw the first episode (10-15 minutes) of all five, and this continued for three more weeks. Every week the audience voted to determine the winner. It was a lot of fun and was all for a worthy cause.
