Last winter, more than 130 artists applied to create new operas with OTSL. Ultimately, just three multi-genre teams were selected by a panel of St. Louis artists, advocates, and community leaders. Meet the artists who are pushing the boundaries of opera, hear musical excerpts from their works, and learn more from acclaimed scholars at Washington University about the context surrounding each story.
Moderated by Professor Adrienne Davis, featuring artists Tre’von Griffith, Joe X. Jiang, Simon Tam, and Del’Shawn Taylor, Professor Marlon M. Bailey and Post-Doctoral Fellow in African and African American Studies, Dr. Ashley Dennis.
There will be a small reception prior to the event. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
Parking is free and can be found in the rear of the building. There is a shared parking garage with COCA, which offers complimentary parking on a first come, first serve basis. Entrance is behind the building on Washington Ave.
This event is co-presented by Opera Theatre of St. Louis and Washington University’s Department of Music.
