Opera...From a Sistah's Point of View
Traveling the world as an international opera star, Angela Brown noticed something about audiences. “I would see very few people who looked like me,” says Brown. On the surface, it looked like a racial divide, but when Brown performed at schools and universities across the country, she realized the gap was bigger than race. This compelled her to create Opera…from a Sistah’s Point of View that dispels the myths surrounding the sometimes-intimidating art form called opera.
Showcasing the fresh talent of rising Black opera stars alongside Angela’s tongue-in-cheek commentary on the opera plots from a Black perspective, the show blows up preconceived expectations of opera. Opera…from a Sistah’s Point of View helps people from all walks of life find themselves in and enjoy opera and leaves no doubt of the ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic diversity depicted in opera characters. Angela 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!”
