The Michigan Opera Theatre’s Dance Season Opens With a Powerful and Provocative Performance

A Letter to My Nephew” is the story of a young, promising dancer’s struggles with addiction, eventually leading to the end of his career.

It’s the latest dance theater work of company co-founder Bill T. Jones.

It’s also a personal story, about Jones’ nephew Lance Briggs.

Listen to Jones describe the process of bringing his nephew’s story to the stage, and how the Detroit culture will influence the performance at the Michigan Opera Theatre this weekend.
