12.120 Prisoners: Musicals and Opera
The following directives apply to prisoners who are guests of the State or Federal penitentiary system. Although any prison may take part anywhere in the World, I am aiming initially at American tribal prisoners only.
Prisoners: obey God, obey your wardens and as of today, obey me. As a sign of obedience I direct an event is organised within your prison for those allowed the gift of special privileges. Create a prison choral society. By the autumn of 2003 perform a theatrical spectacle of "Prison Music for Peace" made up as follows but in any order.
The songs you compose may not include any cursing or obscene language. Especially the "Rap" lyrics. The theme must be the elimination of absolute poverty and elimination of war by December 12th, 2012.
Black prisoners must sing the "musical style" songs only and include their interpretation of at least one song from Mary Poppins or The Prince of Egypt sung with existing lyrics and music. The other two songs must be to existing music but their own lyrics.
Mexican, Puerto Rican, Greek, etc. prisoners must sing the opera style songs only and include at least one World famous opera song (chorus only to be sung in Italian). The same rules as above apply. Two songs must be to existing music but with their own lyrics.
The white guys have to rap. One of their compositions must include at least 20% of the lyrics in Spanish.
Everyone can join in the chorus of the three songs sung during the interludes and at the end. Any style music. The performance may not exceed 12 songs (total length approximately 1 hour of actual singing).
No cross dressing while singing "knees up Mother Brown" and absolutely no escape attempts. This is not a World War 2 POW movie - it's reality. The word of your governor and prison wardens is final, including how to spend the royalties of any CD success to benefit the victims of crime.
Learn from each other's cultures. Go do it.
