Why See Metropolitan Opera - Fire Shut Up In My Bones?

Classical & Opera

returning to the Met Stage

Terence Blanchard's 'Fire Shut Up In My Bones' returns to the Met Opera after its stunning 2021 premiere. Not only it was one of the first productions to resume after a year of cancellations but, more importantly, it was also the first opera by an African American composer to be performed on the Met stage.  The production is a collaboration with the Opera Theater of St Louis as well as St Louis Jazz. This bold opera tackles challenging themes and is based upon Charles M. Blow's memoir of the same name.

What is the story?

The story centers around Charlie as he struggles to overcome a childhood and adolescence of hardship and abuse. Some key female figures - some real and others spiritual - help Charles to forge a new path for his life. Set against the backdrop of Southern America, 'Fire Shut Up In My Bones' saw critical acclaim by key critics when it premiered in 2021, marking it out as a 21st Century masterpiece.
