online screening of Is this America?
On Friday, October 23 at 6:00 pm MT the Santa Fe Opera and Center for Contemporary Arts will present a special online screening of Is This America?, a workshop of the new, one-act opera This Little Light of Mine that portrays key events in the life of voting rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer. A black woman of humble origins, she spoke truth to power and her tireless efforts culminated in the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As part of the Center for Contemporary Arts’ Living Room Series, the national screening of Is This America? will be followed by a panel discussion with stage director Beth Greenberg, composer Chandler Carter and librettist Diana Solomon-Glover. The panelists will discuss the origins of their new opera, This Little Light of Mine, and the importance of hearing the collective voices of all U.S. citizens in the November 3, 2020 presidential election.
