Hartford Stage will host a post-show Clergy Panel discussion about faith with members of the Greater Hartford religious community after the performance of Breath & Imagination on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Before Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson, there was Roland Hayes - the first world-renowned African-American classical vocalist. Born the son of a slave, Roland discovered his voice as a young boy singing spirituals in church. A world premiere, Breath & Imagination, chronicles his amazing journey from a plantation in Georgia, to singing before kings and queens in Europe. At the heart of the story is Roland's loving, yet complex relationship with his mother - his Angel Mo'. Breath & Imagination explores the life of an American pioneer through traditional spirituals and classical music, as well as original songs by Daniel Beaty.
Breath & Imagination is a new play by Beaty, directed by Darko Tresnjak. The cast includes international classical music vocalist and gospel singer Jubilant Sykes, Broadway veteran Kecia Lewis-Evans (Once on This Island and Chicago), and pianist Tom Frey ("2 Pianos/4 Hands").
