A Negro Leagues opera will make its debut this year

Here’s something to look forward to: an opera about Negro Leagues baseball. “The Summer King,” by composer Daniel Sonenberg, has been more than 10 years in the making, and thanks to an NEA grant is expected to be heard later this year in Portland, Maine. Perhaps one day it will be staged in Kansas City.
