With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

So what, exactly, is this? Well, it's definitely not your grandmother's opera!
Pop-Opera, or "popera" if you will, is our own fusion of the musical terms and styles of "pop" and opera as only Men Alive can bring!
Imagine Lady GaGa's "Edge of Glory" performed as a soaring pop and opera mix, or the tender beauty of Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" done as a power ballad! How about a totally re-imagined "Anvil Chorus" as you've never heard before? And in this concert, you'll hear a bit of Verdi and Gilbert & Sullivan right next to a bit of Annie Lennox and Madonna! They've even dared to stage a live-action version of an "operatic" animated classic you'll instantly recognize! That's right ... they went there!
Get ready for magnificent costumes, fabulous dance numbers, incredible songs and the "Popperettas" to guide you through the whole amazing experience.
