Silkroad Ensemble – Heroes Take Their Stands

April 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Grammy Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble performs the world premiere of a bold new project, Heroes Take Their Stands. This evening-length, multimedia program tells the stories of five heroic figures from diverse cultures – from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Elektra of Greek mythology, to Arjuna of Hindu epic poetry – and captures the drama of the moral borderland between conflicting values, asking, “What does it mean to take a stand in a moment of moral uncertainty? What does an everyday hero look like? And how can an ordinary person make a difference?”
