The Schomburg Center hosts a lot of interesting events. The last time I was there was for the Boy Scouts of Harlem documentary. They are now hosting another interesting event in partnership with the New York City Opera. It’s about Malcolm X-the great civil rights leader.
Marking the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, the New York City Opera will present an abridged concert version of “The Life and Times of Malcolm X” on May 12 at Harlem’s Schomburg Center. Composer Anthony Davis and scenarist Christopher Davis will offer insights on their inspiration and creative process.
New York City Opera’s collaboration with the Schomburg Center is part of Opera Matters, the company’s series of events combining conversation, media and live music to celebrate opera’s connections to the visual arts, film, literature, the mass media and pop culture, the African-American experience and the world at large.
