Legendary soprano Kathleen Battle makes her Auditorium Theatre debut with a powerful program of songs inspired by the Underground Railroad, the secret network that helped bring 19th-century slaves to freedom. The five-time Grammy winner and opera star brings “remarkable freshness and beauty” (The New York Times) to this performance of classic spirituals and traditional pieces, including “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “Wade in the Water.” Battle’s voice has been hailed as one of the “most beautiful in the world” by The Washington Post and “an agile, glimmering lyric soprano” by NPR.
