Post Pardon: The Opera (A Sneak Preview)
The Marion E. Greene Black Box Theater
Oakland, CA
Share this event:


Post Pardon, a contemporary opera in development, funded by the City of Oakland's Cultural Funding Program, presents its first public concert of songs.

A mythical and spiritual exploration of a woman who contemplates life, the taking of her own and that of her only child, Post Pardon invites us to bear witness to our inherited sorrows.

Post-performance Q&A, moderated by Ellen Sebastian Chang


Composed by Jessica Jones; libretto by Arisa White


Featured vocalists: Jeannine Anderson, Larena S. Burno, Courtney Knott, Amber McZeal, Phoebe Anne Thomas Sorgen, and Cynthia Webster.

Musicians: Vijay Anderson (drums), Lisa Mezzacappa (bass), Jessica Jones (piano), and Mark Wright (trumpet).


Adapted from the poetry collection Post Pardon, published by Mouthfeel Press in 2011, Post Pardon: The Opera is musically influenced by avant-garde improv, Buddhist chants, salsa, South African piano jazz, and individual composers, from the Impressionists to Allen Sherman and Ornette Coleman to Sweet Honey in the Rock.
