International opera sensation Julia Bullock returned to St. Louis to co-star in the new Opera Theatre of Saint Louis production "Fire Shut Up in My Bones."

She spoke candidly with the St. Louis American about her life growing up in St. Louis, her experiences as a black woman of mixed heritage in the world of opera, and the ways in which her journey as a performer parallels legendary entertainer and activist Josephine Baker, also raised in St. Louis.

Julia Bullock inspires and challenges young black girls and women who aspire to perform on the stage internationally.
