Live! Meet Opera Composer Paul Moravec '80
Please join us on Friday, March 4th at 7:30 for the North Carolina Opera's performance of Paul Moravec's "Sanctuary Road": All HCRT members are invited to a pre-performance reception at 6:30 in honor of composer Paul Moravec.
After the success of his opera The Shining, award-winning composer Paul Moravec has once again collaborated with librettist Mark Campbell to create the second of his ‘American historical oratorios’. SANCTUARY ROAD draws on the astonishing stories found in William Still’s book The Underground Railroad Records, which documents the network of secret routes and safe houses used by African American slaves to escape into free states and Canada.
SANCTUARY ROAD lasts approximately 70m, and is performed without an intermission.
Sung in English with English supertitles.
