"Shuffle Along" - 100th Anniversary Tribute

Harlem Opera Theater will present a Tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the 1921 production at the center of the Harlem Renaissance.

This historic African American breakthrough musical production premiered on Broadway in 1921; music and lyrics by Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle (left/right) with the comic team of  Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles  (top/bottom). “Shuffle Along” is credited with launching the careers of Josephine Baker, Florence Mills, Bill Robinson, and Paul Robeson; the orchestra included Hall Johnson and William Grant Still.  One of the songs, “I Am Just Wild About Harry” was adopted as a campaign slogan for the campaign of President Truman. Enjoy the voices of Harlem Opera Theater Vocal Competition finalists and artistic colleagues in this virtual concert which will be streamed in November 2021.
