Join Opera MODO for a soul-stirring evening of song!

This one-night-only event includes a special sneak peek of Opera MODO’s upcoming run of Carlisle Floyd’s electrifying opera, Susannah.  Dive into a world of passion, betrayal, and redemption in this groundbreaking all-Black production, coming to Detroit for the first time ever!

Throughout the opera, we witness the enchanting Susannah Polk, a captivating young woman at odds with a hypocritical village blinded by their own desires. Follow her journey from innocence to empowerment, from victim to victor, set against the backdrop of the mesmerizing Tennessee mountains. Feel the heat rise as secrets unravel, lust clashes with piety, and the power of resilience shines through each note. Let the stunning vocals and emotive melodies transport you to a world where tradition meets sensuality, where forgiveness battles with vengeance, and where the true essence of HOME is discovered.

Don't miss this exclusive preview concert that promises to ignite your senses, stir your soul, and leave you craving more. Join us for an unforgettable evening with Kimwana Doner and Dr. Brandon Waddles (and others!) performing selections from Susannah and other operatic, musical theater, and spiritual works that remind us of HOME.
