The Big Deal: ‘Fela!’ at the AT&T Performing Arts Center

by Gila Espinoza 1 May 2013 7:36 AM

The Broadway production Fela! comes to the Winspear Opera House for two weeks and we have five pairs of tickets to giveaway for opening night, May 7. 

Fela! is based on the life of Fela Kuti, who created Afrobeat—a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies—and mixed these sensual eclectic rhythms with simple but powerful lyrics that openly assailed Nigeria’s corrupt and oppressive dictatorships. The show is backed by the power broker team of Jay Z and Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith.  Bill T. Jones directed and choreographed the Tony Award-winning production that stars Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child.

Disclaimer alert: To win this Big Deal or our other two Big Deals – tickets for Keyboard Conversations with Jeffrey Siegel at the Eisemann Center and Fort Worth Opera’s The Daughter of the Regiment, you must first be an Art&Seek subscriber

UPDATE:  We have our winners! Come back next week for some more Big Deals.
