This innovative fusion of opera and spoken word brings Marian’s brave journey to life through the eyes of present-day college student and community activist, Neveah. An HGO original commission, Marian’s Song, was created by two prominent Black artists, composer Damien Sneed and librettist Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton, Houston’s poet laureate emeritus.
