The First Bluebird in the Morning is composer Carlos Simon's newly-commissioned setting of verses by Sandra Seatonsobering, heartfelt and moving. 

Shot in stunning black and white, the film is created by director and choreographer Jamar Roberts. In a breathtaking performance, solo dancer Lloyd Knight, a principal dancer for the Martha Graham Dance Company, brings life and movement to the piece in combination with the voice of tenor Joshua Blue (who will make his mainstage LA Opera debut later this season in St. Matthew Passion).
