Deep Love, A Ghostly Rock Opera OPERA

Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera OPERA is a story of love, loss and indecision where sweethearts become adversaries in pursuit of what they cannot live without. Told entirely through continuous, haunting rock and roll, DEEP LOVE features Jon Peter Lewis from American Idol, his bandmate from The Voice Ryan Hayes (of the group Midas Whale), and Amy Whitcomb from The Voice and The Sing-Off. Heartwarming and heartbreaking, it promises to delight all ages. The show was recently selected to be performed at The New York Musical Theatre Festival.
