Making Morning Star to Air on CET & CET Arts


Cincinnati, OH – CET is pleased to announce that we’ll be broadcasting a new local documentary, Making Morning Star, at 9pm Thursday, June 18, on CET with multiple encores on CET and CET Arts.

Making Morning Star was created by filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar of Yellow Springs. The Academy Award-nominated pair shot much of the film in Cincinnati during a 10-day workshop hosted by the Cincinnati Opera and the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati as part of the Opera Fusion: New Works collaboration.

Making Morning Star follows the creation of the new opera, Morning Star. This opera tells the story of immigrants living in New York’s Lower East Side in the early 20th century who find their dreams tarnished by hardships – the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, World War I, and the Great Depression.

The full broadcast schedule for Making Morning Star is as follows:


Thursday, June 18, at 9pm and 10:30pm

Sunday, July 21, at 5pm

On CET Arts

Sunday, July 21, at 9pm

Monday, July 22, at 9am, 2pm and 6pm

Tuesday, July 23, at 11am, 4pm and 11pm


CET also will be airing Triangle Fire: American Experience at 9:30pm Thursday, June 18, on CET immediately following Making Morning Star.

The Cincinnati Opera will be presenting the world premiere of Morning Star on June 30 as well as July 2, 8, 10, 12, 17 and 19 at the School for Creative and Performing Arts. Details are available at www.cincinnatiopera.org.
