Synopsis

Adeola is a budding chef. He brings style and his specialty, vegan jollof. Asha is a tired, hard-working boss of a neighbourhood café. Will her job criteria barriers deter Adeola, or will he bring the flavour party she needs? Welcome to The House of Jollof Opera, written by Tumi Williams as an exploration and expansion of the operatic form, and directed by Sita Thomas, a multidisciplinary director. The creative duo enjoyed developing their collaborative relationship, bringing their own cultural heritages to the piece, and engaging in contemporary opera in Cardiff.
