CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, USA
Libretto and Score by Douglas Tappin
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.
