Children's Opera on "Anansi" Premieres at Curtis


  • Lenfest Hall 1616 Locust Street Philadelphia, PA, 19103 United States (map)

I'm very excited to be writing a children's opera for Curtis' Family Concerts series! The libretto and music will be composed with input from students at Girard College and William Cramp Elementary School, and we're shaping the story around Anansi, an Akan folk tale character. The singers are dynamite, and the opera is sure to be exciting for audiences of all ages! Anansi will have three performances:

Saturday, March 30th, 2019 at Girard College, 11:00AM

Sunday, March 31st, 2019 in Lenfest Hall at The Curtis Institute of Music, 11:00AM

and Sunday, March 31st, 2019 in Lenfest Hall at The Curtis Institute of Music, 1:00PM.

Can’t wait to see you there! Tickets are available on Curtis’ website.
