Terence Blanchard, libretto by Kasi Lemmons
2 hours, 55 minutes with one intermission

Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir (libretto by Kasi Lemmons) tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome trauma and hardship. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown co-direct this new staging, featuring baritone Will Liverman, one of opera’s exciting young artists, alongside sopranos Angel Blue and Latonia Moore.

Fire Shut Up in My Bones addresses adult themes and contains some adult language.
