In this electronic opera, Dr. Sofia composes a celebration of the life of Francis of Paola, a Franciscan monk who lived in the fifteenth century and who dedicated his life to benefit mankind and the peaceful coexistence of all.
The opera is adapted from the biography written by Padre Antonio Castiglione, O.M. and was conceived and realized as a multimedia composition for dancers, narration and graphics. The narration was of concern "to find the right words to support the true meaning of Charitas." Finally, while reading a book, Hinduism: A Cultural Perspective by David R. Kinsley, Sofia came across the words "that made perfect sense (even though one subject is of Christian faith and the other is Hinduism) and that fit appropriately with the music and dance." This compact disc contains the music and narration of Charitas.
