Terence Blanchard’s opera Fire Shut Up in My Bones made history in 2021 as the first opera written by a Black composer to be staged at the Metropolitan Opera. This “opera in jazz,” as Blanchard describes it, tells the true coming-of-age story of a young boy growing up in the face of great adversity and forging his personal identity. Now, Terence Blanchard brings us a new suite of music from the opera, performed by the celebrated trumpeter and his E-Collective, the Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet and vocalists Nicholas Newton and Adrienne Danrich.
