Event

VOODOO, a Harlem Renaissance Opera
Morningside Opera, Harlem Opera Theater, and The Harlem Chamber Players join forces to present a semi-staged concert production of the Harlem Renaissance opera Voodoo by Harry Lawrence Freeman. Two performances only will take place at Miller Theatre at Columbia University (116th Street and Broadway) on June 26 & 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM.

Gregory Hopkins, the Artistic Director of Harlem Opera Theater, will conduct the seven principal singers, full chorus, and 30-piece orchestra.

A contemporary of Scott Joplin, composer Harry Lawrence Freeman was well-known in the Harlem community and gained acceptance in classical music circles in the 1920s to 1940s. He won numerous awards, and his operas were performed on Broadway and at Carnegie Hall. Despite these achievements, most of his operas remain unpublished, and there are no professional recordings of his music. Join us for this historic concert - the first performance of VOODOO since its 1928 premiere!

This project is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; in part by Council Member Inez E. Dickens, 9th Council District, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and the New York City Council; in part by a grant from Columbia Community Service; a grant from the West Harlem Development Corporation of Tides Corporation; and through the generous donations of our individual supporters. This project is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and The New York Community Trust/Charles E. Culpeper Fund. Additionally, this project is made possible in part by public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
