Author: Opera Philadelphia - Courtney Bryan’s Blessed is a multi-layered exploration of darkness and light, hope and love. Created as a response to the milestone events of 2020—the uprising in response to police brutality against Black men and women, the November election—Blessed reflects upon the Christian Bible’s avowal that the meek will one day “inherit the earth.” With filmmaker Tiona Nekkia McClodden, soprano Janinah Burnett, vocalist Damian Norfleet, and sound designer Rob Kaplowitz. Premieres February 26 on the Opera Philadelphia Channel.
Ensemble: Opera Philadelphia
