Workshop and Reading
Boston Opera Collaborative and Longy continue this wildly popular evening of short, new operas in English.
This year we will commission new Opera Bites that will cultivate in a presentation of "Workshop and Reading"
A commission of brand new 10 minute operas (our opera bites) pairing together the next generation of opera composers and librettists to bring stories of today to the operatic stage. This 2 year long creative process will present readings of the works this year and cultivate in full performances in the 24/25 season.
People Love Opera Bites!
"Delightfully thought-provoking and fun...a delicious program celebrating life’s sweetest and sometimes most sour moments with cleverness and heart."
"Boston Opera Collaborative struck gold again with this refined selection of short and sweet works."
"Most of the collaborative’s singers are early in their careers, and vibrant singing and dramatic know-how are obviously in no short supply, One can easily imagine bragging in a
few years that we saw some of them way back when."
