More info

The idea of taking your money and

going to the hills when you lose the

fight is an idea that is very real today

and something so very real at the

time of the emancipation

Proclamation. At the end of the civil

war the slaves were freed and were

no longer in bondage. They could

leave the plantation with no money,

no education, no land and no families.

They moved forward without an acre

and a mule. Treemonisha is an opera

that tells the audience what happens

when confronted with these ordeals.

Women rise up and lead and nobody

sees it coming and the world is the

better for it!!!

While the men of this community are

strong enough to see the course and

strong enough to to embrace

inclusiveness, aspects of the

community at large corrupt

themselves. Treemonisha has learned

well from her parent’s example of love

and caring and leads her own people

away from the path of the conjurors

and on to the path of the unified

community, embracing love.
