“Invigorating to stand behind someone else’s dream and push hard, we are almost there. Be a part of the dream to get a new voice to the Opera stage with OBEAH”
Obeah Opera is a hand clapping, foot stomping, spirit‐lifting, magical musical sensation unlike any other opera before it. Steeped in Black music, sung entirelya cappella by a powerful, racially diverse all‐female cast of 14, Obeah Opera tells the story of the legendary Salem Witch Trials from the fascinating perspective of Caribbean slave women.
This World Premiere redefines traditional opera by moving away from European classical standards. Unbound by any particular genre, Obeah Opera encompasses an array of musical styles – spirituals, blues, jazz, gospel, traditional African, Caribbean Folk, Calypso, Ska, R&B and Reggae. What additionally makes this work unique and beyond the conventional definition of opera is that there are no musical instruments; just pure, compelling voice.
