Manoel Felciano presents and stars in The Hidden Sky, featuring music and lyrics by Peter Foley and a book by Kate Chisholm.
This semi-staged concert version of select moments from The Hidden Sky also features Merle Dandridge, Marya Grandy, Lauren Molina, and Katrina Yaukey.
The world as we know it is no more. In its place, a society exists where math, science and the thirst for the unknown have been forbidden by the government and forgotten by the populace. Based on a short story by Ursula K. Le Guin, this award-winning music-theater piece tells the story of Ganil, a young woman whose longing for knowledge leads her on a passionate journey of discovery. As she risks her life in pursuit of truth, a series of unexpected events forces her to make a profound leap into the unknown.
With an eclectic score featuring lush choral singing and contemporary rhythms, The Hidden Sky is a mythical tale of aspiration, awakening, and the indomitable human spirit and is particularly topical today, dealing with issues of politics vs. religion vs. scientific inquiry vs. spirituality that resonate in many of our current debates.
So far this new music theater piece has won the Richard Rodgers Development Award and the Spirit Award for Best New Score and has been nominated for 6 Barrymore Awards, including Outstanding Original Music and Outstanding New Play.
