Great Performances at the Met will make its return with 10 new operas premiering this year on PBS. Season 16 will feature Fire Shut Up in My Bones (April 1), the historic production that marked the Met’s first performance of an opera by a Black composer, Grammy winner Terence Blanchard; and Rigoletto (June 17), directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher.
