The Cannabis Cantata, by award winning Santa Cruz composer Joel Ford, is an avant-garde jazz/rock/reggae opera inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous Coffee Cantata. Ford’s smokin’ libretto presents a satirical twist on Bach’s original coffee theme substituting marijuana as today’s illicit substance. Ford’s original upbeat score infuses the libretto with lively melodies and rhythms evocative of post-bop jazz and a ripple of reggae. The opera’s nine-part jazz band features Paul Cantos on saxophone and Renzo Staiano on guitar. The cast includes the vocal talents of Rebecca Stuhlbarg, John Seales, Eric Iverson, and Claire Gendler. Directed and produced by Joel Ford.
