Opening Night of the 2021–22 season will be a historic occasion—the Met's first performance of an opera by a Black composer. Yannick Nzet-Sguin conducts Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard's adaptation of Charles M. Blow's moving memoir, which The New York Times praised after its 2019 world premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis as "bold and affecting" and "subtly powerful."
