In the glamorous city of Venice in the 1700s, music and parties ruled the culture. And Violetta and Mino are both deep into the first and far removed from the second. As orphans at the Hospital of Incurables, the two are victims of circumstance but uniquely bonded through love and music, via Violetta’s voice and Mino’s homemade violin.

The Orphan’s Song tells the story of Mino’s search for his family – and Violetta’s desire to leave the Incurables and discover Venice and true love. Sometimes heartbreaking and frustrating, you’ll love exploring the exciting culture of Venice – filled with masks, parties, and a deep passion for music. The Orphan’s Song steps into a world where two unique souls try to find their way back together.
