Opera Discussion: Highway 1, USA

Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. ONLINE
UCPL and the Opera Theatre of St. Louis invite you to join us for an online discussion of the opera Highway 1, USA. Opera Theatre docent Chakita Jackson will lead the discussion on this intimate dramatic opera, which was composed by “the dean of African-American composers” William Grant Still. Highway 1, USA will be performed as part of Opera Theatre's festival season, as part of a double bill with Puccini's Gianni Schicci.

This is the third in a series of online programs presented by UCPL and the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, all of which are free and open to all. Send an email to reference@ucitylibrary.org to receive an email invitation to the Zoom event to take part in the live question-and-answer sessions for this and the other programs in the series. Thiese events will also be live-streamed onto the UCPL Facebook page and YouTube channel.
