Watch a rock opera as the entire city comes to light
For a week in late March, practically the entire city of Baltimore will be glowing in neon. The inaugural festival, dubbed Light City Baltimore, will feature hundreds of cutting-edge art installations, performances, and musical acts, all free. Inspired by other light festivals around the world, the event aims to transform the look of the city’s epicenter of the Inner Harbor, but also commissions artists to create sculptures based on lesser-known neighborhoods, like Greater Mondawmin. Throughout the week, you can see art of every discipline imaginable, including a performance by Dan Deacon, synchronized swimming acts, stilt-walkers, light-up puppet shows, a rock opera ballet, spoken-word artists, drum lines, local troupes performing plays, and neon sculptures lighting up the night sky. Prepare for Baltimore to look like one big, trippy EDM festival.
