The groundbreaking opera Fire Shut Up in My Bones comes to our city, and with it a behind the scenes look hosted by CHF and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. This intimate evening features a conversation with famed jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard and conductor Daniela Candillari. These two artists will explore the process of adapting New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow’s acclaimed memoir about his childhood in the South into an opera that sounds like America, centering on the Black experience in this country as few operas have done before.
