Apr 29

LT Pick

Six-time Grammy Award winning composer Terence Blanchard brings his first opera to the Met. A groundbreaking work combining the disciplines of opera and jazz, Champion tells the real-life story of world champion boxer Emile Griffith, a man haunted by memories of his past who struggled to reconcile his sexuality in a hyper-macho world. Champion’s visually stunning production and soulful score illuminates Griffith’s triumphs and struggles that are still powerfully relevant today.
