Mixed Blood’s response to the Mid-Term Election, PRESCIENT HARBINGERS, is three full-length plays (Gloria, Hooded and Hype Man), performed in rotating repertory, by African American provocateurs. They are glued together by an African American male prism, through contrast, and via Second Amendment violations.
HOODED, or Being Black for Dummies, is a breathtakingly subversive dead-serious comedy that unwraps what is no laughing matter: race relations in America and the peril young Black men are in. Every performance of "Hooded" will have English captions. No Audio Description is yet scheduled.

About the Show
running time TBA; Nov. 10-18, 2018.
By Kevin Puts, libretto by Mark Campbell, based on the screenplay Joyeux Noel by Christian Carion, Commissioned by MN Opera’s New Works Initiative.
Highlighting a moment of peace in the midst of war, this international sensation makes its homecoming, honoring the centennial of World War I’s conclusion. Recounting a miraculous moment of peace during one of the bloodiest wars in human history, Scottish, French, and German officers defy their superiors and negotiate a Christmas Eve truce. The Pulitzer-Prize winning music underscores the yearning, despair, and hope of the soldiers living in the trenches. Silent Night masterfully juxtaposes the bombastic sounds of war with serene songs from home, and stands as a heartfelt hymn to our common humanity.
