“All that you touch You Change. All that you Change, Changes you. The Only Lasting Truth is Change”
– Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower

Based on the post-apocalyptic novel by the late Afro-futurist and science fiction author Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower is a genre-defying opera that harnesses two centuries of Black music.

Conceived by Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon, Parable chronicles the spiritual awakening of young Lauren Olamina amidst a dystopian America wracked by the violence brought on by unrelenting greed and systemic injustice.

Parable fuses science fiction, African-American spiritualism, a deep examination of gender, race and environmental activism to construct a mesmerizing work of rare power and beauty that reveals deep insights on the future of human civilization.
