World Premiere of DREAMERS Live from Zellerbach Hall

Engaging with an issue that speaks uniquely to our times, acclaimed Peruvian composer Jimmy López, who earned his doctorate at UC Berkeley, has composed Dreamers, a new oratorio informed by interactions with Bay Area and campus immigrant communities, telling deeply personal stories through music and opening his creative process to audiences through a series of public programs. A rising star on the international scene, López has been called "one of the most interesting young composers anywhere today" (Chicago Sun Times). For Dreamers, he teams up with a favorite collaborator as librettist—the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Cuban–American playwright Nilo Cruz.
