Madagascar & Reunion: Maraina, The First Opera from the Indian Ocean

Marie-Clémence & Cesar Paes present a trailer of Maraina, a film that showcases, in their words,  “the first opera to be created in the Indian Ocean region” [fr].

Maraina tells the story of ten Malagasy and two Frenchmen who landed in Madagascar in the mid-17th century to plant tobacco and aloes. It will be shown in movie theaters in France in November 2012.
