About

Daron Hagen is a Guggenheim, Rockefeller, and Kennedy Center Friedheim Award-winning composer, with a catalogue of internationally performed work spanning four decades. His operafilm Orson Rehearsed is the psychological, emotional, and spiritual journey taken by the American actor, polymath, and creator of Citizen Kane Orson Welles, as he finds himself on the threshold between life and death. Memories of Welles as a Wunderkind and in his swashbuckling prime are brought to life, as well as successes and failures both real and imagined, with the consolation of a life fully lived. Fusing live players with pre-recorded sounds and effects, the film version of Orson Rehearsed has been a multiple award winner at festivals in the US, Europe and beyond.

Daron Hagen’s numerous operas have all been staged to great acclaim, many of them being steadily revived as new productions – a rare enough accolade in this genre for a contemporary composer. Orson Rehearsed has already generated a great deal of interest, with its film version already been shown widely and in competition on the festival circuit, garnering numerous laurels.
