The program "New and Dangerous Opinions of Roger Williams" fuses writings of Roger Williams and Native American poetry, underscored by music of Handel, Orlando di Lasso, and Rhode Island's own Chris Turner, and John Milton (whose son, the famous poet of the same name, was a friend and philosophical inspiration to Roger Williams.) This lively program, set in the dramatic political and philosophical fray of colonial RI, introduces audiences to the strong-minded iconoclast, Roger Williams and his deep respect for Native American culture.
