Terence Blanchard @ the DSO

Terence Blanchard brings two unmissable performances to the Meyerson Symphony Center!

Fire Shut Up in My Bones

February 8, 2023

Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center

New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow’s widely acclaimed memoir is the source for this extremely moving story of his traumatic youth in Louisiana. What an amazing collection of talent: composer Terence Blanchard, one of the most influential figures in American jazz; librettist Kasi Lemmons, director of such remarkable films as Harriet and Eve’s Bayou; and a top-flight cast including many of America’s most brilliant singing actors. Fire Shut Up in My Bones is an opera for today, revealing the black experience in this country as few other operas have done.
