April 1-3 - Galaxies in Her Eyes
World-Premiere Opera
Galaxies In Her Eyes will debut at the High Point University Culp Planetarium on April 1, 2, and 3, 2022. This short, family-friendly opera tells the story of a young girl (patterned after Dr. Mae Jemison) who dreams of going to the stars. She imaginatively weaves together the stories of astronomical pioneers Annie Jump Cannon, Katherine Johnson, and Ada Lovelace, whose work helps to make that journey possible. Across time and space, she discovers a sisterhood of science which is defined by collaboration, perseverance, a fascination with the unknown - and the importance of doing your math homework. Galaxies In Her Eyes is made possible by generous support from the HPU Department of Music, the Winston-Salem Symphony, The National Science Foundation, the HPU Cultural Programs Committee, and the Stephen and Linda Stone family.

April 1 at 7:30pm, April 2 and 3 at 2:00 and 7:30pm in the Culp Planetarium
