Tales from the Briar Patch by Nkeiru Okoye and Carman Moore (librettist)
On February 27, 2020 SMTD presented a public workshop reading of “Bre’r Rabbit and the Tar Baby,” the first of three stories in Nkeiru Okoye and Carman Moore’s Tales from the Briar Patch, a new opera in development that is both family-friendly and fun. In this updated reboot of the traditional Bre’r Rabbit stories, Sister Sparrow, Sister Robin, and Madame Partridge retell the antics of Bre’r Rabbit and his nemesis Bre’r Fox. This public reading was the culmination of a workshop with SMTD singers and the composer. The FaceBook watch party will include commentary by the composer and cast members.

Free and open to all
