FIREBRAND poet Mikey Smith is the focus of Reggae Opera Mikey, composed by noted Jamaican musician Peter Ashbourne.
The opera is scheduled to debut next June, but snippets of it will be shown at the Jamaica School of Music, Edna Manley College on October 8.
It will bring the curtain down on a series of activities by MUSIC Unites Jamaica Foundation, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, located in St Andrew. The series opens September 30 and comprises special concerts, workshops and master classes. 'Mikey', however, should get a lot of attention.
