The Metropolitan Opera’s 2022-23 season continues with the network broadcast premiere of Champion. Terence Blanchard’s opera in jazz follows the rise and fall of boxer Emile Griffith, who became a world champion in the 1960s, but grappled with homophobia and his own guilt over a devastating tragedy in the ring. This acclaimed performance from April starred a pair of extraordinary bass baritones: Ryan Speedo Green and Eric Owens. The dazzling ensemble cast also featured Latonia Moore, Paul Groves, Eric Greene, Chauncey Packer, and Stephanie Blythe. Metropolitan Opera Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin led the Met orchestra and chorus in this rich and riveting score.
