Why See Los Angeles Opera - Omar?

Classical & Opera

West Coast Premiere

As part of the LA Opera's 2022-23 Season, the company hosts the West Coast premiere of this compelling opera from Rhiannan Gidden and Michael Abels. Based on the autobiography of Omar Ibn Said, the only surviving slave narrative written in Arabic from the era, Omar tells the story of how the Muslim scholar was ripped from his peaceful life in West Africa into slavery in South Carolina in 1807.

Evocatively blending elements of traditional opera with West African melodies, Omar stars Jamez McCordle in his company debut and is set in the hinterland of memory and imagination, presenting the characters he encountered on his journey and the solace of his faith in the face of his stolen life.
