Family Secrets: Kith and Kin Reveals Worst and Best via the NC Opera Stage
By Ken Hoover
Family Secrets: Kith and Kin is an opera consisting of produce, as it were, grown in North Carolina. The libretto is by seven esteemed southern writers, the music is by North Carolina born Daniel Thomas Davis, and the production and performance were realized at Burning Coal Theatre at the Murphy School in Raleigh by a cadre of superb talent mustered by North Carolina Opera and staring the shining light behind it all, the extraordinary soprano Andrea Edith Moore.
The music, composed by Davis, offers clever lyricism, dramatic accompaniment, and unification of all elements of the production.
