OCA together with Anima Mundi productions presents: Maternità

A unique new recital exploring the theme of motherhood through famous operatic heroines and world premieres by Black, First Nations/Indigenous, and Latina female composers

Anima Mundi Productions and The Meshé Legacy present Maternità. Takesha Meshé Kizart-Thomas has been praised by the New York Times for a voice that is “powerful, lustrous, silky, caramel-hued, wielding impressive ease and elegant control” and called “worthy of all superlatives… with a breathtaking mastery and unflinching portrayals… a vocal flexibility that enables her to acutely pass from a tearful murmur to a firm luminosity. And her dramatic intelligence is worthy of the great ‘lionesses’ of the lyric theater.” (Opera Magazine)

She is joined by Memphis-based concert pianist Artina McCain, known for her “power and finesse” (Dallas Arts Society) and “sense of color, balance and texture” (Austin Chamber Music Center).
