Ezra Jack Keats’s award-winning work, The Snowy Day, was the first mainstream children’s book to feature a Black boy as its protagonist. Peter, a young boy out exploring the city alone for the first time, experiences the delights of crunching, sliding, and playing in a fresh snowfall and, along the way, learns some truths about life.

The story comes to life for the holidays in this world premiere opera from the creative duo of composer Joel Thompson and librettist Andrea Davis Pinkney.

HGO Studio artist and soprano Raven McMillon takes on the role of Peter and director Omer Ben Seadia brings the wonder and magic of the boy’s wintry world to life. HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers conducts.
