X, THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MALCOLM X

In its Midwest premiere, Anthony Davis and Thulani Davis’s American opera "X, The Life and Times of Malcolm X," this epic new production will perform for Omaha audiences first before traveling to The Met in 2023.



Through a series of vignettes, X outlines the life of Malcolm X from boyhood to his assassination, discovering the past, present and future vision of “a prophet in search of a Black utopia, charting a course for the future." Davis’s jazz-infused, contemporary score traces the path of a figure that grasps the attention of America in biography and legacy.
