Welcome to Bellacopia

Final Map of Bellacopia.jpg

Welcome to Bellacopia, an imaginary island that could have existed in one of the most creative times in history: The Renaissance Era.  This is the setting for an epic story of a young chef on a Quest to revive an ancient recipe for Eternal Youth and Beauty.  "The Sauce of Immortality" is a musical fantasy about the glories of food, music, and artistic perfection. This musical screenplay written by Paul Montesano is an epic adventure about the search for meaning and the fulfillment of a prophecy.  In a Quest to redeem the failures of his father,  Baba Linguini searches for the supernatural ingredients that will complete an unfinished masterpiece and feed Humanity.

Baba's early life is depicted in a scene at Papo's chef school.  Kids are gathered in an amazing kitchen with chopping blocks, burners, and tools to practice the art of "Fire and Spice".  Papo demonstrates that the life of a chef is everything from practicing culi-nary skills to cleaning messes, and serving people.  Papo sings Rossini's "La Danza".

Baba plays his lute for the AQUA SPRITES who guard the Neptune Orchid in the Valley of Narcissus.  They are delighted, and promise to give it to him.  Captivated by his own reflection and the hypnotic charms of the Sprites, Baba wants to stay.  Zinfandella enters with a new song to break the spell.

HERMETO

Genius musician, composer and entertainer HERMETO PASCOAL is a Brazilian treasure.  His spontaneous creativity and humor have inspired this animated character of the same name.  Hermeto has agreed to participate in the "Sauce of Immortality" project, by allowing us to use his name, image, and even his music.

Script page 3

In our story, Hermeto is a blind musician and master of the sixth sense.  He sets the tone for playfulness and creativity.  This song "Welcome to Bellacopia"  is derived from a Hermeto Pascoal original and sung by various lead characters, describing the  artistic world of this mythical island.

BABA LINGUINI demonstrates his culinary skills as head chef and teacher at Aunt Chovi's Bistro.  In what looks like a combination of martial arts and cooking, the kitchen crew follows the beat as Baba delivers his message.  Limbs fly as they imitate Baba's methods of cuts, chops, slices and spices.

Narcissist and head chef at the Prancing Pig,  Prince Machabelli  serves up exquisite-ly mediocre entertainment and food to the rich and famous of Bellacopia.  He is Baba's jealous rival and desperate to become one of the great Renaissance men of his time. This featured performance at Zinfandella's homecoming dinner proves that he has everything it takes as an artist, except talent.
