Hilma, a multi-part opera by Daniel Zlatkin, is an invitation to step into the world of Hilma af Klint, the occultist Swedish painter, considered by many as the first modern abstract artist. Through Zlatkin's original music and libretto, Hilma goes on a spiritual journey, aided by her living friends and astral guardians. Through five scenes, supported by an all-student cast and orchestra, the realization of Hilma's artistic vision unfolds.

The performances will take place in Lois Chiles Studio Theater.
