The Opus Project Choir Foundation first discovered the music of Steve Dobrogosz, an American composer living in Sweden, in 2007. That year the choir performed his two best known works, the Mass and the Requiem, which audiences enthusiastically received. While he was attending this project (called “Opus 1”) in Leeuwarden, the choir suggested that he write a much larger work, an oratorio. When he returned to Sweden, he became inspired by the beautiful, timeless texts of William Shakespeare. Thus came My Rose into existence, a two hour long work that was composed in the space of only 4 days. The oratorio contains various musical styles, classical, jazz and musical theatre, mixed together with a touch of romance and a pinch of humor.
