For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged.
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir. The first opera by a Black composer presented on the Met stage and featuring a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown—two of the creators of the recent production of the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess—co-direct this new staging, live in cinemas on October 23. Baritone Will Liverman, one of opera’s most exciting young artists, stars as Charles, alongside sopranos Angel Blue as Destiny/Loneliness/Greta and Latonia Moore as Billie. Please Note: the dates of Met Opera productions may be subject to change.

Take a journey from Bean to Bar. Setting the Bar follows the top craft chocolate makers in the world as they journey through the deep jungles of the Peruvian Amazon in search of rare native cacao varietals that have never been used in chocolate production.
Share in the passion and excitement of the chocolate makers as they travel into the unknown, find purpose in the stories of the indigenous cacao farmers, and view first-hand the widespread impacts of deforestation, drug trade, and large agribusinesses on the Amazonian way of life. Join them as they confront the myriad of issues facing the craft chocolate industry today, hearing from people on all sides of the industry.
Setting the Bar uncovers a new era of sustainable chocolate trade: one that protects livelihoods, supports environmental sustainability, educates consumers to make better choices, and also creates award winning chocolate bars!
We will also be having tastings provided by Jasper + Myrtle.
