Synopsis

Back by popular demand, the Metropolitan Opera’s groundbreaking production of Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones returns to cinemas on February 12 in celebration of Black History Month. Hailed as “a watershed moment for American opera” by The Washington Post, the opera recently made history as the first work by a Black composer to be presented at the Met and tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship.

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!
