After the success of his opera The Shining, Pulitzer Prizewinning composer Paul Moravec has once again collaborated with librettist Mark Campbell to create the second of his “American historical oratorios.” Sanctuary Road draws on the astonishing stories to be found in William Still’s book The Underground Railroad, which documents the network of secret routes and safe houses used by African American slaves to escape into free states and Canada during the early-to-mid1800s. The epic nature of these stories of courage, perseverance, and sacrifice is transformed into an enthralling saga, heard here in its world premiere performance at Carnegie Hall.
