Fire Shup Up In My Bones

Opening Night of the 2021–22 season will be a historic occasion—the Met's first performance of an opera by a Black composer. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award– winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir.

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.
