About the opera: Combining spoken word, contemporary dance, classical, R&B, and jazz singing, “We Shall Not Be Moved” tells the story of five North Philadelphia teens on the run.

Their confrontation with a local police officer rises from the enduring ashes of the Philadelphia Police Department’s 1985 bombing of the MOVE compound in West Philadelphia.

This opera asks “For whom America the Beautiful?” and raises timely questions about national identity, race, gender, the failure for some in the public education system, and personal responsibility.

With music by Daniel Bernard Roumain, libretto by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and directed by Bill T. Jones. Recommended for ages 14 and up due to strong language and violence.
