Sing Sistah Sing!

Show Concert im Rahmen des Black History Month mit Andrea Baker & Richard Lewis, UK

With Sing Sistah Sing! Andrea Baker tells her own deeply personal story and pays joyful, soulful homage to many of the women who courageously paved her way.
Some of the women celebrated in Sing Sistah Sing! include Leontyne Price, Marian Anderson, Donna Summer, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday. Sing Sistah Sing! brilliantly weaves together these women’s brave struggles both in the civil rights movement and in their fight for artistic freedom at home and abroad. Some have chosen opera, jazz or blues to express their inner truth, but at the heart of the Sing Sistah Sing! story is that all of African American women carry in their souls and voices the sounds of their ancestors’ songs of the plantation.  
Described as possessing a “luscious and full-bodied tone” (Das Opernglas), Andrea Baker is renowned for her distinctive voice, intense artistry, and passion. Her much heralded interpretations range from Amneris in Aida, Fricka in Die Walküre and the title role in Carmen to Nen-Nen in Dominique Legendre’s world premiere of The Bird of Night.
