Unfinished Opera About Nanny Well Received

The praise came at least partly, because of the patriotism of the audience, though, ironically, none of the three women - Nanny of the Maroons, the opera's main character; the composer, Dr Shirley J. Thompson, and soprano Abigail Kelly, the work's soloist - is a "born Jamaican". Click here to read more.
