MSM Opera Theatre Presents: Resistance – Resilience – Reconciliation

Thank you for watching! This performance is no longer available for on-demand viewing.

DEC 18  | FRI
8 PM EST

MSM Opera Theatre presents:

RESISTENCE – RESILIENCE – RECONCILIATION

Scenes of Moral Struggle and Social Justice

The performance will be a mix of live-streamed scenes, filmed and broadcast while safely distanced and masked at MSM. Interspersed between the scenes will be pre-recorded footage, including participation of students performing remotely from around the world.

 

A NOTE FROM MSM DIRECTOR OF OPERA STUDIES, TAZEWELL THOMPSON:

“In a bitterly divided world, the future relies on those willing to take a stand against oppression. Resistance takes many forms: battles can be fought with military force, martyrdom, nonviolent resistance, philosophical argument and/or witty maneuvers, as we see in some of the scenes that follow. But confrontation is only the first step: opera also gives us models for binding up our wounds, healing our divisions, and moving forward, wiser than before.”
