About the Event

Continuing our 2020 season, Voices of Change, the Promenade Opera Project team presents ‘A Night of Dreams’. In this, the second installment in our POP-Up performance series, our artists explore the question ‘What does it mean to dream?’ through texts by inspiring historical voices such as Langston Hughes and Gertrude Stein, ranging in style from bel canto to contemporary compositions. Florence Price’s serene ‘Night’ sets the scene before excerpts from Humperdinck’s ‘Hansel und Gretel’ beckon listeners into the first permutation of the ‘dream’ idea. The artists then share a waking dream from Bellini’s ‘La Sonnambula’, and build into sharing a dream as an aspiration for the future through words by Langston Hughes from William Grant Still’s ‘Troubled Island’. The concert closes with Mason Bynes’ song, ‘The House’, which uses Gertrude Stein’s text of the same title to share with us a dreamlike scene of a house twinkling in the night, full of love and family.
