Six-time Grammy  Award–winning composer Terence Blanchard brings his first opera to the  Met after his Fire Shut Up in My Bones triumphantly premiered with the  company to universal acclaim in 2021–22. Bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green  is the young boxer Emile Griffith, who rises from obscurity to become a  world champion, and bass-baritone Eric Owens portrays Griffith’s older  self, haunted by the ghosts of his past.

Soprano Latonia Moore is Emelda Griffith, the boxer’s estranged  mother, and mezzo- soprano Stephanie Blythe is the bar owner Kathy  Hagan. Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium for Blanchard’s second  Met premiere, also reuniting the director-and-choreographer team of  James Robinson and Camille A. Brown.
