Boston's 2014 opera highlights

See also

Though there is no grand house in Boston dedicated solely to the performance of opera such as there are in New York and Chicago, Boston's opera scene could not be more alive. After the closing of Opera Boston, Boston Lyric Opera remained one of the only steady going companies in Boston, but new companies, such as Odyssey Opera and Opera Brittenica, continue to sprout. Companies aside, Boston has a wealth of musical education with strong financial foundations and talented young singers. The Boston Conservatory, New England Conservatory, and Boston University Opera Institute are only three such institutions who invariably bring high-caliber opera performances to the public.

Single opera performances can also be hear through many of Boston's symphonically based organizations. In early March the newly appointed music director and acclaimed opera conductor, Andris Nelsons, will lead the Boston Symphony Orchestra in a concert performance of Strauss' "Salome" and the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra presents "Tosca" in mid-January as its annual semi-staged opera.

Boston Baroque keeps ornate early opera on the scene with Rameau's "La Guirlande" and Monteverdi's "Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria."

Though a little more searching and sifting is necessary, there is no lack of opera in Boston.
