Music by Anthony Davis; Libretto by Thulani Davis; Story by Christopher Davis

Activist. Orator. Husband. Leader. One of the most misunderstood figures in US history, Malcolm X was an icon of the Civil Rights Movement. Get to know the man through a series of biographical vignettes that follow Malcolm X from his interrupted childhood in Lansing, Michigan to his tragic murder in Harlem. With a score by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Anthony Davis (The Central Park Five) that fuses elements of modernism, minimalism, and jazz, X produces a sound world that is unmistakably individual.

Kenneth Kellogg and Joshua Stewart return to McCaw Hall as Malcolm and Elijah/Street in this "riveting and uncompromising work" (The New Yorker) that is being restored to the operatic canon in a co-production with Detroit Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, The Metropolitan Opera, and Opera Omaha.
