Yara Arts Group's concert work about the poet Taras Shevchenko & the actor Ira Aldridge, Dark Night Bright Stars, plays next week, March 13 – March 16, 2014.
Taras Shevchenko was imprisoned for nine years. After his release in 1858 he met the African American actor Ira Aldridge at the home of Leo Tolstoy. Although they didn't speak the same languages, they became friends with the help of the translating skills of Tolstoy's daughters. The portrait of Aldridge (above, right) was drawn by Shevchenko.
