Hōʻike 2023: PAIʻEA - A Hawaiian Rock Opera

Thursday, March 9, 2023 at 6:00pm - 9:00 pm


    Hōʻike returns as an all-kula production and presents a rock opera honoring our namesake, Kamehameha Paiʻea. This year's production builds and scales the workshop production presented last May into a full rock opera. Presented primarily in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, PAIʻEA highlights the major moments in Kamehameha 'Ekahi's life, from his birth to lifting the Naha Pōhaku, to the Battle of Mokuʻōhai. Tickets will be on-sale soon with proceeds defraying travel costs for students to present this show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland this summer. Shows will be presented on Thursday, March 9 and Friday, March 10 at the Koaiʻa Gymnasium, starting at 6 p.m.
