A concert performance of Joplin’s uplifting opera featuring full orchestra on stage, a star-studded cast of 11 national/local singers, and the choirs of Jackson State University, Mississippi College and Tougaloo College. Plus dancers from Ballet Mississippi.  In African American composer Scott Joplin’s opera, Treemonisha, the libretto (written by Joplin) portrays a young slave woman who is educated during her youth and subsequently rallies her community against superstition and ignorance.  Although she faces hostility for it, she is successful in helping them understand that education is the key to success and they ultimately choose her to lead them on this path.   In celebration of the Mississippi Bicentennial, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra will presents this concert performance of Treemonisha as an offering that looks forward through the lens of our shared history
