Intriguing “opera”

trialsI don’t know whether I’d call this opera or not but it’s certainly music theatre and of a rather interesting kind. Obeah Opera is an a cappella theatre piece in which an all-female cast examines the story of the Salem Witch Trials from the perspective of enslaved African women.  it’s being workshopped, in preparation for next year’s PANAMANIA; the arts and culture program of the Pan Am games, at the Dancemakers Studio in the Distillery (9 Trinity St, studio 313)  on Sept 11, 12 and 13 at 8pm and Sept 14 at 2pm.  It’s directed by Weyni Mengesha with music direction by Andrew Craig.
