A NOTE FROM MSM DIRECTOR OF OPERA STUDIES
TAZEWELL THOMPSON

“In a bitterly divided world, the future relies on those willing to take a stand against oppression. Resistance takes many forms: battles can be fought with military force, martyrdom, nonviolent resistance, philosophical argument and/or witty maneuvers, as we see in some of the scenes that follow. But confrontation is only the first step: opera also gives us models for binding up our wounds, healing our divisions, and moving forward, wiser than before.” – Tazewell Thompson
