Josephine is Tom Cipullo’s one-act monodrama based on the life of singer and dancer Josephine Baker, who escaped racism in America and found fame and success in France as an artist, a French Resistance hero and a civil rights activist. Soprano Laquita Mitchell sings the title role. The program is paired with the world premiere of MOR commission Wertheim Park by Lori Laitman – a dramatic song weaving music and poetry together in a deeply moving elegy for the Dutch Jews lost to the Holocaust – and chamber works by Holocaust-era composers Max Vredenburg and Erwin Schulhoff.
