Emmett Till, The Opera was originally scheduled to premiere in October 2020. From Mary D. Watkins:
Emmett Till, The Opera tells the story of Emmett Till, a 14- year-old boy from Chicago who was tortured and lynched by two white men in Mississippi in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman. His mother, Mamie Till Mobley, made the courageous decision to show his mutilated face in an open casket at his funeral so that the world could see what had happened to her son. Although his murderers were never convicted, her action caught the country’s attention and helped ignite the Civil Rights Movement.
