Freedom Ride

The Studebaker Theater
410 S. Michigan Ave Chicago

When the Congress of Racial Equality comes to New Orleans in the sweltering summer of 1961, Sylvie Davenport is torn. Handed a pamphlet and asked to board a Greyhound bus, Sylvie is forced to choose between her academic future and the future of the nation in a story that highlights how far we've come and how far we still have left to go. Tazewell Thompson (Blue, Jubilee) directs Cardiff prize winner Lauren Michelle in this world premiere commission by Dan Shore, developed at Xavier University with the activists who lived the history. Staley Music Director Lidiya Yankovskaya conducts the critically acclaimed Chicago Sinfonietta.
