Our next production SWOPERA: A Spoken Word Opera


SWOPERA: A Spoken Word Opera tells a contemporary story of gentrification, one family's efforts to save their business in light of changing community dynamics, and finding unexpected leadership in the youngest member of the family, Lem. The text is delivered in spoken word poetry and rhyme, accompanied by elements of Hip-Hop and Soul. Created by the CBT Ensemble and emerging community artists. SWOPERA, coming this April, is the next production in Carpetbag's 50th Anniversary Celebration, Directed by Steven Sapp of UNIVERSES and fully supported by the Roy Cockrum Foundation.
