Returning since its powerful 2017 premiere on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, this riveting two-performer show blends opera legends Marian Anderson and Leontyne Price’s most memorable performances—including opera, art songs, and more—with narrative spoken word. Created and written by Tom Minter and originally commissioned by Washington National Opera Artistic Director Francesca Zambello, the work chronicles some of the challenges these two women faced in their careers as African American singers, and highlights ongoing issues of race in America.
Most enjoyed by age 12 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
