Virginia Opera brings to The Historic Masonic Theatre stage a musical history of one of the most celebrated singers in the twentieth century, Marian Anderson became an important figure in the struggle for black artists to overcome racial prejudice in the United States. Virginia Opera celebrates Ms. Anderson’s incredible journey with a newly commissioned program about her rise to a pre-eminent spot among the world's concert artists in spite of racial attitudes of the times, which she met with courage, grace and determination. Major milestones depicted include her debut with the New York Philharmonic at age 28; her meeting with composer Jean Sibelius on her first European concert tour; the cancellation of her performance at Washington's Constitution Hall by the Daughters of the American Revolution and the subsequent historic concert given at the Lincoln Memorial; and her ground-breaking appearance as the first African-American artist to sing with the Metropolitan Opera. Musical selections performed include excerpts from the repertoire associated with Anderson's career, including spirituals and patriotic songs as well as music by Bach, Donizetti, Sibelius, Verdi and others.


Virginia Opera , in its 42nd year of operation, is known and respected nationwide for the identification and presentation of the finest young artists, for the musical and dramatic integrity of its productions, and for the ingenuity and variety of its education and outreach programs. In 1994, by unanimous vote of the Virginia General Assembly, Virginia Opera was named The Official Opera Company of the Commonwealth of Virginia in recognition of the organization’s contribution to the Commonwealth and to the world of opera.

Gone With the Wind boils down to a story about a spoiled Southern girl's hopeless love for a married man. Producer David O. Selznick managed to expand this concept, and Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel, into nearly four hours' worth of screen time, on a then-astronomical 3.7-million-dollar budget, creating what would become one of the most beloved movies of all time.

Gone With the Wind won ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actress (Vivien Leigh), and Best Supporting Actress (Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Oscar). The film grossed nearly 192 million dollars, assuring that, just as he predicted, Selznick's epitaph would be "The Man Who Made Gone With the Wind."
