    Breath & Imagination
    The musical, heartfelt story inspired by world-renowned opera singer Roland Hayes
    Playing Jan 27 – Feb 8, 2015
    Emerson College / Paramount Center
    559 Washington Street, Boston, MA

    Before there was Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson, there was Roland Hayes – the first world-renowned African-American classical vocalist. Born the son of a slave in Georgia, Roland discovered his voice as a young boy singing spirituals in church. Breath & Imagination is a musical play that renders the life of his amazing journey of this pioneer from the plantation in Georgia to singing before kings and queens in Europe and becoming the first African-American soloist to perform with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Employing spirituals and classical music, Breath & Imagination is an inspirational exploration of one man's determination to be an artist despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

    Created by celebrated artist Daniel Beaty (Emergency) and starring award-winning actor Elijah Rock— reprising his role as Roland Hayes for which he received the NAACP Theatre Award for Best Performer in 2014.
