Current Projects


Champion: An Opera in Jazz debuted at Opera Theatre St. Louis in June 2013 to sold out audiences and great national acclaim. As a modern opera, Champion explores the human condition, its triumphs and tragedies through the life of famed boxer Emile Griffith.

"Terence Blanchard's new opera astutely mixes neo-Romanticism with sophisticated jazz elements... Champion has enthralled the audience here..." - Financial Times (London)

"The jazz-inflected numbers particularly the ensembles, grab your attention and underline the jittery, disturbing nature of Emile's inner conflict..." - Wall Street Journal

"A new work of quality and staying power, one that deserves to be taken up by other opera producers far and wide..." - Chicago Tribune
