Approaching Ali

Thursday, January 29 | 7PM

 D.J. Sparr's new one-act opera in English based on The Tao of Muhammad Ali by Davis Miller

Many dream about meeting their heroes. A rare few actually get to know them. In his operatic debut, Richmond-based composer D.J. Sparr’s Approaching Ali stunned and delighted Kennedy Center audiences last year in a performance that the Washington Times called “intensely emotional.” Chosen by the Washington National Opera to kick off their American Opera Initiative, Sparr’s work is based upon The Tao of Muhammad Ali, Davis Miller’s autobiographical novel of his relationship with the iconic boxer. Miller co-wrote the libretto with Pulitzer Prize-winner Mark Campbell. The exciting young composer’s contemporary score charges this inspiring true story.
