"I Dream: The Story of A Preacher From Atlanta

Friday, May 18 through Friday, May 25
Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts
Presented by Opera Carolina

Douglas Tappin, I Dream

The final 36 hours in the remarkable life of American icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is recounted through flash-backs to the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement and Dr. King and Coretta’s journey together.  I Dream envisions a renewing of Dr. King’s dream at a time of deep divisions in our culture.  Composer Douglas Tappin fuses classical, jazz, contemporary and Broadway styles into language that communicates the power and immediacy of Dr. King’s message.

Presented by Novant Health. A modern, Rhythm & Blues opera recounts the final 36 hours in the remarkable life of American icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was an all-too-human hero, who composer Douglas Tappin depicts as a flawed man of God who taught a nation that only love can obliterate hate.

Although I Dream is largely based on real events, it does not purport to be an authorized biographical representation of those events. Where necessary or creatively desirable, the imperatives of a theatrical presentation have therefore taken precedence over historical precision.
