Orchestral rock groupĀ MontopolisĀ will present their multimedia concerts “The Living Coast” and “The Legend of Big Bend” in a live stream performance live from the North Door and streamed exclusively on the Long Center’s Facebook page.

“The Living Coast” is a nature film, storytelling, and live music performance that explores the Texas gulf coast. Narrated by Emily Perzan and accompanied by director Anlo Sepulveda’s stunning video of the Texas Coast.

“The Legend of Big Bend” performance weaves history, poetry, and personal stories into music inspired by the land. Actor Jared Donnelly narrates the journey accompanied by the breathtaking photography of Chirstopher Zebo.
