Synopsis

Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award - winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard's adaptation of Charles M. Blow's moving memoir. The first opera by a Black composer presented on the Met stage and featuring a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells a poignant and profound story about a young man's journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown - two of the creators of the recent production of the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess co-direct this new staging, live in cinemas on October 23. Baritone Will Liverman, one of opera's most exciting young artists, stars as Charles, alongside sopranos Angel Blue as Destiny/Loneliness/Greta and Latonia Moore as Billie. Content Advisory: Fire Shut Up in My Bones addresses adult themes and contains some adult language.

This is a powerful opera. Well worth watching. The staging is very effective and the music by Terence Blanchard is superb. Not to be missed.

I loved this opera and the cast. BUT, the transmission was lost minutes before the end and it was VERY disappointing!
