FIRE SHUT UP IN MY BONES: co-commissioned w. Opera Theatre of Saint Louis

More Info

Opera Theatre of Saint Louis’s 2019 world premiere Fire Shut Up in My Bones, was co-commissioned by Jazz St. Louis.

One moment can change everything. When Charles discovers that his cousin has returned to his Louisiana hometown, he races home from college to confront his past. Memories and shadows surround Charles as he strives to move beyond a cycle of violence and forge a brave new path. Terence Blanchard, composer of OTSL’s sold-out hit Champion, teams up with screenwriter Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou) for a haunting, powerful, and tender coming-of-age story inspired by a memoir celebrated as “stunning” (Essence), “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), and “exquisite” (The New York Times).

Run time is 2 hours and 25 minutes with one intermission
All run times are approximate and subject to change.
