THIS LITTLE LIGHT of MINE is an inventive one-woman musical tribute honoring the ground breaking careers of two African-American opera legends who overcame many racial barriers from the Jim Crow era through the Civil Rights Movement to become international opera stars. With live singing, storytelling, recorded excerpts and documentary images, the performance shines a light on African-American singers who walk in the footsteps of Marian Anderson and Leontyne Price and features opera arias and songs associated these two operatic legends.
Originally commissioned by Cincinnati Opera, Ms. Danrich has presented THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE across the country including Next Act Theater in Milwaukee, Laredo Philharmonic, Baltimore Concert Opera, Delaware Opera, Philadelphia Orchestra/Mann Center, Artists Series at Asolo/Sarasota, The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, and was televised on Cincinnati Public Television (WCET). A special presentation of THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE was also televised on Milwaukee Public Television (MPTV) for which Adrienne Danrich won a Midwest Emmy.
