Harriet Tubman may be the best-known conductor of the Underground Railroad, but there were others, including William Still. An abolitionist and historian, as well as a conductor for the Underground Railroad, he is credited with helping nearly 800 enslaved African Americans escape to freedom. Sanctuary Road by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec is based on the remarkable writings of William Still.

Music by Paul Moravec. Libretto by Mark Campbell. In partnership with Virginia Symphony Orchestra. Sung in English with English surtitles. The orchestra for this production is provided by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
