NCO is proud to present the world stage premiere of Sanctuary Road from composer Paul Moravec and librettist Mark Campbell.  The opera takes you on inspiring and harrowing journeys on the Underground Railroad.  Based on first-hand accounts recorded by William Still, a conductor on the railroad, Sanctuary Road gives voice to the passengers who made the dangerous trip to freedom. Conductor William Henry Curry and director Dennis Whitehead Darling both make their NCO debuts with this moving tale of the struggle for liberty.
