Edmonia

May 3 @ 7:30 pm

Discover the extraordinary life and career of 19th century Black and Native American sculptor Edmonia Lewis in a new hybrid opera from award-winning composer Dr. Bill Banfield. The two-act opera chronicles Lewis’ remarkable journey from her turbulent time at Oberlin College—including an accusation of attempted murder—to her recognition as an internationally celebrated artist, posthumous erasure, and rediscovery. Join the students, faculty, and guests of Interlochen Arts Academy for the world premiere of this groundbreaking multidisciplinary work and experience the incredible true story of a long-forgotten, barrier-breaking artist.
