Anthony Davis Discusses His Upcoming Opera

“I’m very concerned about the future,” says composer and UCSD professor Anthony Davis, who has never shied away from controversial subjects. “That’s why it’s important for me to continue to write about political events because I believe the country is in peril. We could easily fall into a plutocracy, and it’s an open question whether our institutions will survive.” Davis has been scoring his latest opera, Darkest Light in the Heart, to premiere at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2020.
