Ypsilanti Freighthouse is hosting a new folk opera by Ann Arbor-based performing arts company, Fifth Wall, and the performance is set to debut on August 28th. The opera is named Michigan Trees: A guide to the Trees of Michigan and the Great Lakes Region and centers on a transwoman’s journey to embracing her identity and womanhood. It is a travel-themed opera for classical and folk vocalists steeped in mythos and Michigan, all the while remaining relevant to the present experiences of transgenders. The opera is written by U-M Alum, Grey Grant, who co-founded Fifth Wall.
