Scott Joplin's Treemonisha

Stanford Live

Scott Joplin's Treemonisha, the first opera about life post-slavery by a black person, fuses classical, folk, and gospel, it bore ragtime's syncopations. Thematically, it was ahead of its time. But nobody would risk producing a black composer's work and the work was thrown away. Now, reconstructed with new libretto and orchestrations by Leah-Simone Bowen, Treemonisha lives again.
