Met Opera: Fire Shut In My Bones
February 12 @ 12:55 am - 3:00 pm$32
Pre-opera talk with Dr. Andrew Shryock, 12 PM
Due to its popularity, we are screening an encore presentation of Fire Shut Up in My Bones! Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s acclaimed adaptation of the celebrated memoir by New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow. Featuring a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells the story of 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 Met’s recent production of Porgy and Bess—co-direct this new staging.
