Afiwa : an African opera( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

American premiere of Afiwa, an African folk opera in two acts. The King of Anlo had seven wives and only female children. He commanded that no wife should give birth to a female child, or the baby would be thrown into the river. His most favored wife bore a female child, and the baby was thrown into the river as the king had commanded, but was picked up by another woman who raised the child. The grown daughter later disobeyed an order of the king, and he commanded that she be punished, but his Counselors heard her story and decided to punish the king instead for his crime committed years earlier. Afiwa was first performed in Keta, Gold Coast, in November 1936, and subsequently performed several times in West Africa, mostly in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Dr. Dyke Kiel, Professor of Music, Cottey College, produced the stage production. Performer of the lead role (the king's daughter), Joseryl Beckley, is a native of Sierra Leone and a 2000 graduate of Cottey College. Second female lead, foster mother of the king's daughter, teaches vocal music at Cottey. Most actors, singers, and crew members were students at Cottey College
