Honors College students will attend a preview of “Appomattox”, composed by Phillip Glass and performed by the Washington National Opera.
From the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum:
“Set as the American Civil War draws to a close, with Ulysses S. Grant issuing Abraham Lincoln’s terms of surrender to Robert E. Lee, then flashing forward to Martin Luther King Jr. struggling to negotiate voting rights with Lyndon B. Johnson, composer Philip Glass’s revised opera will mark 50 years since the Voting Rights Act and 150 years since the end of the Civil War. “
