LEELAH

A Contemporary Jazz Opera 

 

"... Perhaps everybody has a garden of Eden, I don't know; but they have scarcely seen their garden before they see the flaming sword. Then, perhaps, life only offers the choice of remembering the garden or forgetting it."  

James Baldwin

 

Set in a world dominated by the norms of mass consumption and immediate gratification, an eight- year-old digital native finds a toy that lives in tangible form.  Much to her content, her guardian purchases the toy and asks for LeeLaH to do one thing; wait until morning to unwrap her shiny mystery.  But night can be a long time for a young girl ready to discover the wonders that lie beneath the plastic exterior.
