WELL BEHAVED WOMEN
A SONG CYCLE BY CARMEL DEAN
"There is something deeply satisfying about hearing from those who were overshadowed for so long." -Stages of MN
At a time when women's voices struggle to be heard, Carmel Dean imagined what famous women in history would say if given a microphone. Through the voices of Eve, Mary Magdalene, Cleopatra, Harriet Tubman and many more, we hear songs of courage, strength, rage and resilience. The songs range from rock and jazz to country, and are at times painful, heart-warming, and hilarious. Our group of Twin Cities singers portray nineteen women -- some you will recognize, others you learn about for the first time.
