HOPE – Synopsis of a ROCK OPERA

Boy meets guitar, meets his puppy and his first girl who leaves him but the dog stays!  But he’s got HOPE! And he finds her!  A girl named HOPE at the show and he feels fulfilled!  Yet in his passion for music and art and in his quest to create a band and save the world with his songs and games he drives her away from him, he loses his dog and he is again all alone.

His cries and dreams bring the vision of a glorious Angel and he falls madly for her.  Yet that opens up a gateway to a nightmare where a mischievous devil named Doubt sings to misdirect the Boy to play more aggressively!  The dog returns to chase doubt away and the boy’s possible future is restored and he shares his HOPE Amidst Despair with his community.
