Instead, the program has gotten attention over the past week for what one composer tells Vulture was “the height of racist and discriminatory practice.” Daniel Roumain composed an aria titled They Still Want to Kill Us , one of four new pieces commissioned for the May 1 concert. Roumain, whose credits include the lauded 2017 opera We Shall Not Be Moved , wrote lyrics inspired by the details of the massacre, and ended with the lines, “God bless America / God damn America.” On March 19, he tweeted that the Opera “decommissioned” him over the phrase. “What’s so … [Read more...] about Did the Tulsa Opera Dismiss a Black Composer Over One Line?
