The International Contemporary Ensemble, in partnership with Opera Omaha
and FringeArts, presents the Afro-Diasporic Opera Forum online from May
26-28, 2021 with an opening session on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at 7pm ET. The
Forum is a free, three-day series of online events produced by colleagues
and collaborators of the International Contemporary Ensemble in order to
celebrate, share, and reflect on three operas that have had a major impact
on the organization and collaborators. They include: George Lewis’
"Afterword" (2015), Dr. Tyshawn Sorey’s "Perle Noire: Meditations for
Joséphine Baker" (2016), Pauline Oliveros and IONE’s "The Nubian Word for
Flowers: A Phantom Opera" (2017). The Forum will end with the screening of
Lisa E. Harris’ recent opera film, "Cry of the Third Eye" (2020). Over the
three days, conversations and presentations will contextualize these works,
showing the many ways in which they intersect, and their connection to the
past, present, and future of a reimagined/reinvented opera.

Renowned musicologist Dr. Naomi André is the lead scholar and conversation
partner for this three-day series featuring presenters and panelists such
as Julia Bullock, George Lewis, Dr. Matthew D. Morrison, Dr. Fredara
Hadley, Dr. Daniele G. Daude, and many others. Learn more and register at
