Obsidian and Tapestry Make History with New Canadian Black Opera.
Under the crushing power of the Atlantic Ocean, a mythical world rises from the depths Of the Sea.
A father will do anything to save his daughter. Of the Sea follows the story of Maduka, his daughter Binyelum, and fellow Africans thrown overboard during the Middle Passage who now populate mythical underwater kingdoms that span the ocean floor. Amidst the waves, fiery plans for revenge are made, a parent is blinded by love for their child, and a fight against fate begins.
