I'm very excited to be writing a children's opera for Curtis' Family Concerts series! The libretto, by Kanika Ambrose, and the music have been composed with input from students at Girard College. We're shaping the story around Anansi, an Akan folk tale character, and the adventure that put the moon in the sky. The Curtis singers are dynamite, Girard’s children’s choir will be in the show, and all the sets and costumes are being designed by Girard students. 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.
