The Metropolitan Opera’s productions of Matthew Aucoins’ modern masterpiece EURYDICE and of Terence Blanchard’s wrenching opera FIRE SHUT UP IN MY BONES, distributed by CLASART CLASSIC, are nominated for a Grammy award.
Matthew Aucoin - EURYDICE
The ancient Greek myth of Orpheus has inspired composers since opera’s earliest days. American composer Matthew Aucoin now carries that tradition into the 21st century with a captivating new take on the story. With a libretto by multi–award-winning playwright author Sarah Ruhl, the opera reimagines the familiar tale from Eurydice’s point of view. Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads Aucoin’s evocative music and an immersive new staging by Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman. Erin Morley headlines the opera in the title role, starring opposite Joshua Hopkins as Orpheus. Jakub Józef Orliński is Orpheus’s otherworldly alter ego, Nathan Berg is Eurydice’s father, and Barry Banks is Hades.
Terence Blanchard - FIRE SHUT UP IN MY BONES
Oscar-nominated and five-time Grammy-winning composer and jazz musician Terence Blanchard made history when his FIRE SHUT UP IN MY BONES became the first opera by a Black composer to be performed by the Metropolitan Opera. Blanchard’s adaptation of New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow’s memoir features a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons. The work tells a profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a childhood of trauma and hardship. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts a stellar cast starring Will Liverman, Angel Blue and Latonia Moore, and 13-year-old Walter Russell III.
