Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones
February 11, 2022
When Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones premiered at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera House last fall, it made history as the first opera by a Black composer to be performed there in the theater’s 138-year history. As co-director and choreographer, Camille A. Brown also made history as the first Black artist to direct a mainstage Met production. And as this clip shows, she brought down the house with high energy step routines and animated storytelling. Now, the production will have an encore screening in select movie theaters nationwide on Saturday, February 12.
