              Paola Prestini combines wild imagination and controlled practicality on an almost molecular level—it’s as if both are fused together in her DNA. In a conversation with Frank J. Oteri and filmed by Molly Sheridan, Prestini explains how she balances all her activities. Whether she’s talking about her own multimedia operas or VisionIntoArt, the interdisciplinary arts production company she co-founded 15 years ago, she tends to think big but she always manages to make it happen.

                386, ACE. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan—trapped in his Basilica, surrounded by soldiers of the Roman army, who represent the Emperor and what, to Ambrose, is a monstrous heresy. Augustine, successful advocate of Milan—in an agony of spiritual uncertainty, hating himself for his attachment to sex, human love and status. Their paths will cross, illuminating a hidden, transformative understanding. The past is gone – the future is not yet – and now is all there is. This is how Ambrose opens the opera.
