Night Train 57
A Sensory-Friendly Comic Folk Opera
Featuring Dan and Claudia Zanes with Yuriana Sobrino

4:00 pm Sunday, April 5, 2020

The Night Train 57 performance has been canceled.

Enter the freewheeling musical world of Grammy Award-winning singer Dan Zanes, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Claudia Zanes, and percussionist Yuriana Sobrino for Night Train 57, an interactive comic folk opera that takes audiences on a far-out ride to the galaxies and back.

During a joyous dusk-to-dawn trip through the stars, passengers discover the power of friendship and community with the sounds of twenty-first-century handmade sing-along music. It’s an adventure that welcomes travelers of all ages and every sensory level.

Festive original folk singing—backed by guitar, trombone, mandolin, flute, harmonica, ukulele, and percussion—powers the train. Homespun sets and video projections generate an intergalactic atmosphere. Expect to visit psychedelic stars, navigate the challenges of whimsical space travel, and celebrate communal music-making while singing, laughing, and dancing toward a deeper understanding of life’s best possibilities.

Night Train 57 is designed to create a performing arts experience welcoming to all families, including those who have children with autism spectrum disorders or other sensory sensitivities.
