The UK premiere of this award-winning contemporary opera.
A generational rift leads to father and son at odds, with the fate of the family at risk.
Asking ever relevant questions of race, duty and the extent to which loyalty can hold before breaking, Blue follows an African-American family as the patriarch’s job as a policeman clashes with his activist son’s notions of equality and justice.
Marking the UK debut of Blue, the acclaimed Tony Award-winning composer Jeanine Tesori’s score will be fused with the direction of ‘fast-rising’ (The Guardian) star of British theatre Tinuke Craig, to produce an intimate family drama with a devastating emotional core.
Zwakele Tshabalala plays the Son alongside former ENO Harewood Artist Nadine Benjamin (Mother) and Michael Sumuel (Father), who marks his ENO Debut.
Former ENO Mackerras Fellow Matthew Kofi Waldren conducts, with set and costumes by Alex Lowde.
Blue is booking from 20 April 2023 until 4 May 2023 at the London Coliseum.
