HOPERA: A Fallen Hero
Created by Adrian Dunn
Saturday, April 6 at 8 p.m.
HOPERA: A Fallen Hero blends the magic of hip hop and opera to tell the tale of the challenges faced by many inner-city youth. Set in Chicago, the story follows Obadiah and the complex relationship he has with his single mother, and the powerful impact of a positive male mentor. Through gun violence, teen pregnancy, and fatherlessness, the musical play ultimately illustrates that you really can make it - if you want to.
