Landmark performance ... A triumph.

—Associated Press

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.
