Wojtyla Generation: a musical based on the values of John Paul II

Just months before the canonization of John Paul II, and following a successful run in Spain and Poland, the musical Wojtyla Generation made its way to Rome.

The story has it all: emotion, deception, betrayal and fear. It centers on two rival groups of young people from different nationalities.

One group, called the Papaboys, bases their choices on their faith and the ideals of the Polish Pope. The others, called the Pharisees, base their life choices on appearances, drugs and violence.

According to the director, Rafaelle Avallone, it's not a struggle between good an evil, but a story about the realities young people face today. His goal is to present this values to people that have lost hope.

Wojtyla Generation blends lyrical elements with rock music, in eight different languages, to convey its message of peace and love to a wider audience.
