The Premiere of TRUTH, a new folk opera about the life of Sojourner TRUTH will take place on February 16, 17, 18, 2012 at 7:30 pm. With full orchestra under conductor, Hugh Keelan, music direction by Jerry Noble, sets rendered by Amy Johnquest, and lights by Lara Dubin, TRUTH illuminates the life and legacy of this complicated, brilliant woman who, though illiterate, was a relentless and articulate champion of those deprived of justice and freedom, and whose influence has for too long been overlooked. The score by Paula M. Kimper and libretto by Talaya Delaney are accessible and down-to-earth, much of the music derived from folk themes and spirituals, and many of the words Sojourner’s own.
Featuring Evelyn Harris, formerly of Sweet Honey in the Rock, as Sojourner Truth, who lived a life of bravery in the face of unfathomable adversity and never wavered in her faith and hope for a world where all would experience the birthright of freedom. Her nearly unknown story that is filled with astonishing accomplishments and events will, for the first time, be told in a full-length folk opera. Sojourner Truth is a heroine of extraordinary scope whose life story, when heard, will be an inspiration to many.
