Synopsis

Pride (A Lion’s Roar) narrates the experience of prejudice that many people of colour have endured: of being told that you are “aggressive” or “too loud” because your metaphorical roars are unfamiliar within the environments that you have to operate within. Of being made to feel like you have to make yourself smaller to be accepted, turning your roar into a purr so that others don’t feel threatened. Pride (A Lion’s Roar) is a new digital opera created by Renell Shaw (composer/music producer) and Rachael Young (librettist/chorus melody), with animation by Kyle Legall.
