About this show

Before there was Marian Anderson, there was Roland Hayes — the first world-renowned African-American classical vocalist. Breath & Imagination is a play with music that chronicles the amazing journey of this pioneer from a plantation in Georgia to singing for kings and queens in Europe. At the heart of the story is Roland's loving, complex relationship with his mother — his Angel Mo'. Employing spirituals and classical music, Breath & Imagination is an inspirational exploration of one man's determination to be an artist despite seemingly insurmountable odds.
