“It’s the story of a black family in Harlem, a black man who is also a police officer and his wife. They have a child together. We come back and find out that the son was murdered by a police officer, so in the face of this tragic loss, the family is surrounded by their community and embraced by their community, ”said Yuval Sharon, Artistic Director of Michigan Opera Theater.
And once again, Michigan Opera Theater’s new Artistic Director is pushing the boundaries by creating a new audience by respecting and meeting them where they are, while keeping the devotee engaged, captivated and excited.
“It’s such a musical city. The opera feels like it absolutely belongs and that’s what I would love to see happen, which includes going where the good music is going, going in honor of Queen Aretha Sharon added.
It’s not just a place Detroit residents are used to listening to great music. See the beautiful ripples of the Detroit River dance against the backdrop and enjoy boaters smuggling a view of the arts water.
