Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones, the second opera from the six-time Grammy Award–winning and Oscar-nominated trumpeter and composer—who is also known for scoring Spike Lee films—makes history this season as the first opera by a Black composer to be performed by the Met. Blanchard’s groundbreaking masterpiece weaves together jazz, gospel, and classical styles to tell a powerful story of resilience and self-discovery.
The critically acclaimed production, which also features standout choreography by Camille A. Brown, including a show-stopping step dance in Act III, stars an exceptional cast including baritone Will Liverman and sopranos Angel Blue and Latonia Moore. Don’t miss the landmark production—hailed as “a watershed moment for American opera” by The Washington Post
