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.
Hamilton creator Lin Manuel Miranda's first musical - The Tony Award winning "In The Heights" - comes to the big screen. In the Heights centers on a community of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, NYC. At the center of the story is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban neighborhood "Abuela" next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighboring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close knit neighborhood get a dose of what it means to be home.
