Boston Opera Collaborative is a model for the art form and the future of opera.
The Boston Opera Collaborative is giving performers an opportunity to showcase their talents in new ways, and allowing Greater Boston audiences to experience these treasures at affordable prices and in productions that match our attention span and interests.
...this is a jewel of a “Werther,” intimate in scale, incorporating everything of importance from the opera, and restoring a measure of Goethe’s sensibility as well.
It’s through the arias that Handel tells the opera’s real story, and that’s where this “Rinaldo” shines.
It’s the kind of programming and concept that the present-day opera community so desperately needs in order to engage seasoned audiences, attract new ones, and keep the art form looking forward—companies in Boston and across the country might profit by BOC’s example.
