South Shore Opera Company

Workshop performances of composer Jonathon Stinson's opera collaboration with librettist Alan Marshall, a "Civil Rights Opera Project," throughout the creation process.  We created an immersive performance hybrid of play, opera and civil rights mass meeting, with audience singing along to freedom songs.  Performances at South Shore Cultural Center, Northwestern University,  The Chicago Temple, and at the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia during the 2012 Opera America Conference, among others.
