The Battle of Kuamoʻo – 10:00am & 1:00pm Performances

Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi High School presents The Battle of Kuamoʻo, an opera sung entirely in the Hawaiian language, which tells the story of the fateful conflict after the death of King Kamehameha between regional chief Kekuaokalani, loyal to the traditional customs and religion, and Liholiho, the new king swayed by his regent mother to end the old ways to make way for the new. Through music, traditional dance and chant the story is retold of the fate of an island nation shaped by a single battle. This 90-minutes performance promises to be culturally educational and entertaining.
