One event on March 11, 2018 at 2:30pm

We are pleased to announce that we are producing Champion: An Opera in Jazz by Terence Blanchard – native son, jazz trumpeter, band leader, composer, arranger, creator of film scores, and five-time Grammy award winner.

Champion is the complex story of world champion welterweight boxer Emile Griffith, who asks: “What makes a man a man?”

We travel through his broken memories as he retraces his steps to success and failure in love, life, and sport, as a champion and a gay man in the 1960s.
