The Violet Hour

The Violet Hour explores the career of internationally acclaimed soprano Leontyne Price and how she rose to prominence during the 50’s into the 60’s, despite the segregation and discrimination which was prevalent in America. The Violet Hour traces Ms. Price’s journey from the early beginnings of her career up to her final performance of the opera Aida at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1985.  Through the ingenious use of projections and voice, Ms. Lamarre will portray the life of Ms. Leontyne Price, a true iconic American.
