Parable of the Sower returns for an encore performance—a triumphant, mesmerizing display of power and beauty, illuminating deep insights on gender, race, and the future of human civilization. With music and lyrics by Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon, this compelling work gives life to Octavia E. Butler’s acclaimed, science fiction novel of the same name.
Fully staged, the opera brings together over 30 original anthems, drawn from 200 years of Black music, to recreate Butler’s sci-fi, Afrofuturist masterpiece.
Working with Toshi is like going to church. You are at a gathering, and when you leave that gathering, you have a renewed spirit for activism and purpose in life.
