X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X

February 24–March 9, 2024
McCaw Hall

Micah Shumake

One of the most misunderstood figures in US history, Malcolm X was an icon of the civil rights movement. Get to know the man through a series of biographical vignettes that follow him from his tragic childhood in Lansing, Michigan, to his assassination in Harlem. Kenneth Kellogg and Joshua Stewart return to McCaw Hall in this “riveting and uncompromising work” (The New Yorker) that is being restored to the operatic canon in a coproduction with Detroit Opera, Opera Omaha, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and The Metropolitan Opera.
