New Opera 'Blue' Takes On The Tragedy Of Police Brutality

“Very rarely do we get to so directly communicate our feelings about what’s going on in the world. It’s allowed us to kind of grieve and process a lot of trauma.”

Voice alumna Briana Elyse Hunter (MM ’12) talks about her role in “Blue”, a new opera currently running at The Glimmerglass Festival. The new opera by Tazewell Thompson and Jeanine Tesori tells the story of a couple in Harlem who are forced to confront their teenage son’s sudden death by police violence.
