Truth, Alvin Singleton’s New Choral Ballet Based on the Life of Sojourner Truth Premieres in St. Paul

February 1, 2006

To a sellout crowd at the Ordway Theatre in St. Paul, Alvin Singleton's choral ballet based on the life of Sojourner Truth, aptly titled Truth, was premiered by VocalEssence. The [Minneapolis-St. Paul] Star Tribune found that Singleton's music bolstered the story's drama by being "edgy and eclectic, using everything from propulsive percussive instrumentation to a cappella choral utterances to convey Baumfree's momentous mystical journey."
