About

White Snake Projects, (formerly the Friends of Madame White Snake) brings diverse, timely and relevant opera, based on original stories by Cerise Jacobs, to Boston’s mainstage over the next five years. Like the legendary White Snake demon who becomes human to live intensely, White Snake Projects transforms our present day experiences into passionate new opera made in America. We believe there is no better way to bridge the chasms of race, national origin and gender then through a reimagined art form combining cutting edge technology, music, theater, and dance. We kicked off our ambitious strategy in Ouroboros Trilogy, a trio of grand operas, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Madame White Snake, in September 2016. Upcoming projects include REV. 23 (Sep 2017), PermaDeath (2018) and MONKEY, a Kung Fu Puppet Parable (2019).
