VOODOO Classic Opera

  • The Miller Theatre 2960 Broadway New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)


$20 per ticket

     Written in 1914, VOODOO is a classic love triangle set on a Louisiana plantation just after the Civil War. Typical of Harry Lawrence Freeman’s innovative compositional style (which contemporaries compared to Richard Wagner), the opera blends western classical music with African-American spirituals and popular dance music of the day. Join us for this historic concert - the first performance of VOODOO since its 1928 premiere!
