Ensemble Galilei with Rob Nagle, Lily Knight, and Photographs from the Metropolitan Museum of Art
First Person: Seeing America is a moving combination of music, words, and images that tells the history of our country’s extraordinary people. Ensemble Galilei’s evocative melodies and rhythms—played on fiddles, harp, viola da gamba, percussion, banjo, whistles, and oboe—provide the soundtrack. Actor Rob Nagle and actress Lily Knight bring iconic personalities, places, and events to life with brilliant narration. Photographs of hardship and beauty from the Metropolitan Museum of Art are projected on stage. Together, the innovative project tells a poignant tale of our people’s ability to persevere through some of our most trying moments.
