Four-time GRAMMY® winner Angélique Kidjo conjures a world of magical realism to tell the story of Yoruban deity Yemandja in a musical theatre work inspired by her ancestors, her family, and Africa’s resilience. Redolent of Greek tragedy, this Broad Stage co-commission illuminates by parable the consequences of robbing people of their culture. Yemandja is at once a family drama and historical thriller, infused with themes of love, betrayal, honor, free will, and the horrors and injustice of slavery.
