A unique musical and entertainment experience, the Web Opera is based on the tragic events
that led to the suicide death of Tyler Clementi, a US college student.

While suicide directly related to cyberbullying is rare, the negative impacts of social media shaming and cyberabuse on mental health, self-esteem are a growing problem. In addition, many teens and college-age youth go through struggles with suicide and depression that are made worse through negative media contacts including posts and messaging.
The creators and all involved with The Web Opera are proud to be part of the mission against cyberbullying and cyber abuse - we invite you to join us in support of this mission. They work with mental health advisor Eduardo Vega and his Humannovations to support their work in anti-cyberbullying and suicide prevention.
Humannovations provides original support content and educational discussion panels for this important artwork.
