How does one rise up after being knocked down? Find out in “Bounce – the Opera” on June 14, at Abraham Lincoln Playground.

Based on the Greek myth “The Flight of Icarus,” “Bounce” is the tale of a high school basketball star Isacc “Ike the Flight” Harris, who is bound for stardom, but is benched due to the actions of a jealous teammate. Audiences will see if “Flight” can rebound from the emotional and physical pain of gun violence, as the story plays out on local basketball courts across the city and the country.

“Bounce,” June 14, 5:30 pm. Free

Abraham Lincoln Playground [2201 Fifth Ave. at 134th Street in Harlem, (212) 491–1714; www.rdeaarts.com/bounce].
