I Dream, the musical drama inspired by the last days in the remarkable life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has been postponed, it was announced today by Opera Carolina’s Board of Directors. Originally scheduled for this April, I Dream will become part of the 2020/21 season with performances on Jan. 21, 23 and 24, 2021.

“As our board continues to monitor local, state and federal recommendations in response to the COVID- 19 pandemic, we believe this is the best decision for the safety and well-being of our patrons, performing artists, and staff,” said Board Chair Arlene Ferebee. “Opera Carolina remains committed to our community, and we ask for everyone’s understanding and continued support as we work together to get through this public health emergency.”

All ticket purchases for the April performances of I Dream will be honored for subscribers and individual ticket holders.

Douglas Tappin gives us a celebration of the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. With a story set over the last 36 hours in the remarkable life of Dr. King, Opera Carolina’s updated version of our 2018 blockbuster is a powerful closing to our 71st season.
