To See the World

During the Civil War, glasses with colored lenses were used to treat disorders and illnesses. Yellow-trimmed glasses were used to treat syphilis, blue for insanity, and pink for depression. Thus we get the term, “to see the world through rose-colored glasses.”

We Sing America

Date: February, 9th 2013 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Kentucky Opera presents “We Sing America”, a program designed to help tell the history of America through traditional and patriotic songs. Though this program isn’t focused on African American heritage, it does help share American Heritage. Their program includes early ballads like “Barbara Allen” and also some toe tappers from later time periods such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” from the World War II era.
