IN Series begins the 2022 celebration of its 40th year as your “home for thought, debate, history, and innovation” with America’s greatest opera composer John Adams and poet June Jordan’s songplay. This monumental work blends America’s popular music styles and explores the hurt and hope in our society. This is one of the nation’s not-to-miss operatic happenings of the year, breaking through the darkness of what has come before, and rising into the light of possibility ahead.
