Opera...From a Sistah's Point of View
- Cincinnati Opera Website
- Digital Ticket
Through her not-so-serious takes on the opera stories and by demonstrating the ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic diversity portrayed in opera characters, Angela Brown helps people from all walks of life and races find themselves in and enjoy opera. She blows up the preconceived expectations of opera by mixing show-stopping arias, poignant art songs, and moving spirituals with tongue-in-cheek commentary from a Black perspective. The show breaks down barriers for audiences that wouldn't necessarily include opera as a part of their entertainment options. Brown likes to say, "Opera is not about being a certain way, dressing a certain way, speaking a certain way. It's about experiencing, and opera is for everyone!"
