Music by Jeanine Tesori; Libretto by Tazewell Thompson

The 2020 winner for Best New Opera (Music Critics Association) arrives at the McCaw Hall stage in February 2022. From the award-winning team of librettist Tazewell Thompson and composer Jeanine Tesori comes Blue, a portrait of contemporary African American life: of love and loss, church, sisterhood, and most importantly, family. A young couple celebrates the joy of family with the birth of their son. And, later leans on their close-knit community in the aftermath of his death at the hands of a police officer.
