The Little Opera Theatre of NY shines a light on opera legends in “This Little Light of Mine” at the Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Music Center on June 6.
The New York premiere of Adrienne Danrich’s one-woman show is a musical tribute to Marian Anderson and Leontyne Price, two ground-breaking African-American opera legends who overcame many racial barriers from the Jim Crow era through the Civil Rights Movement to become international opera stars.
Featuring live singing, storytelling, recorded excerpts, and documentary images, the performance shines a light on African-American singers who walk in the footsteps of Anderson and Price and features arias and songs associated with these two operatic legends.
“This Little Light of Mine,” June 6 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20, $12 for students at the box office. Suitable for all ages.
