Fire Shut Up In My Bones

Fire Shut Up in My Bones is an opera for today, revealing the Black experience in this country as few other operas have done.

New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow’s widely acclaimed memoir is the source for this extremely moving story of his traumatic youth in Louisiana. What an amazing collection of talent — composer Terence Blanchard, one of the most influential figures in American jazz; librettist Kasi Lemmons, director of such remarkable films as Harriet and Eve’s Bayou; and a topflight cast including many of America’s most brilliant singing actors.

Tickets start at $39
