The musical I have a dream, in memory of the dreams of justice of many oppressed countries, was born and inspired by the project Speak Truth To Power: Robert F. Kennedy's Global Justice and Human Rights initiative that through the experiences and stories of brave defenders around the world aims to educate students and communities on human rights.
The show is played by six boys, between the ages of 10 and 15, with the support of singers and musicians: Roberto Garniga - horn and vocals, Alessandro Martinelli - piano and vocals, Andrea Ferroni - violin; and on guitar from the Jan Novak Music School, Franco Giuliani, the singers Daniela Sannicolò and Federica Boratti, and Debora Comper on percussions and vocals. The opera has also been translated into English.
The Musical was written for singing, chorus, violin, piano, guitar, flute and horn. Six young people from areas devastated by war, poverty, social injustice, dictatorships have all been invited by a Humanitarian Foundation to an International Ethnic Music Festival to tell and sing their story. There is the soldier boy from Rwanda, a child of South Africa, the orphan girl from Afghanistan, a child from Vietnam, a daughter of the Desaparecidos. In the first part of the show, the boys on their way to Italy talk about who they are, where they come from, what they saw and suffered. The second part is dedicated to the Festival: with music, singing and acting, the boys give life to their stories.
