Black History Month at Pegasus Opera

Arise: Legacy and Hope - Pegasus Opera - Greenwich Theatre

This weekend, 1 and 2 October 2021, Pegasus Opera, artistic director Alison Buchanan, is celebrating Black History Month with three concerts at Greenwich Theatre. Arise: Legacy and Hope will celebrate the legacy and hope of Black History and Diversity in a concert which will present a journey through some operatic greats and explore music inspired by the Black Diaspora.

There will be an eclectic mix of music from traditional classics in opera, Caribbean folk songs, music inspired by the black diaspora, music written by black composers including Kwabena Nketia, Errolyn Wallen and Margaret Bonds and Pegasus Opera's new commission Rush, by Des Oliver, inspired by the Windrush generation. 

Performers will include soprano Alison Buchanan, mezzo-sopranos Idunnu Münch and Yolanda Grant-Thompson, counter-tenor Joshua Elmore; tenors Alex Garziglia and Marco Titus, baritones Themba Mvula and Chuma Sijeqa, accompanied by pianist and musical director Avishka Edrisinghe
