Go back in time for the premiere of Ching’s Anna Hunter, The Spirit of Savannah, a story of the woman who changed the future of Savannah through the past and its preservation. The opera follows Louise, a young tour guide in training at the Davenport, who struggles to find her own voice. After a knock on the head, she encounters a mysterious woman who takes her on a journey through the history of the Davenport, and the preservation of Savannah. Louise discovers this woman is in fact Anna Hunter, and is awed by the profound impact she had on the Savannah we know today. Come along for this immersive journey told through music!
