Part 1: A Tribute to Black Men in Opera

All tickets are sold out!

Saturday, February 08, 2020 10:30 AM

Although Paul Robeson and Roland Hayes never appeared in an opera production, their efforts as concert artists opened doors for many black men in opera who not only followed their example but also eventually broke barriers to perform on the operatic stage. In Part 1, Tanisha Mitchell explores the careers of such important artists as Robert McFerrin Sr., Simon Estes, George Shirley, Phillip Creech, and Sir Willard White.

This course has two sessions. To purchase all sessions of The Enduring Legacy of Black Singers in Opera, please click here.
