About Fire Shut Up in My Bones

Terence Blanchard’s stirring drama returns following its landmark company premiere in 2021, with bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green starring as Charles, a young man faced with a fateful decision. Soprano Latonia Moore reprises her heartbreaking portrayal as Charles’s mother, Billie, with rising soprano Brittany Renee doing triple duty as Charles’s love interest, Greta, as well as the embodiments of Loneliness and Destiny. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown’s gripping production includes what is surely the only step dance in opera. Evan Rogister conducts Blanchard’s score, which powerfully melds opera and jazz.

Thought-provoking, Edgy, Relevant, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy new opera - here there is varied music, great choreography and an ever-changing set that keeps the action flowing in a good story.

Don’t see it if you would not like gunshots in your opera, or listening to some frank language. A bit repetitive and slow in parts.

Thought-provoking, Slow, Resonant, Relevant, Great singing

See it if Act 3 was engaging and powerful. Great standout stepping scene. Latonia Moore was terrific.

Don’t see it if Slow, and repetitive at times. Subject matter of childhood sexual abuse can be triggering for some. Course language.
