It’s hard to say opera is “popular” today, when every form of entertainment lives in the palm of your hand. If you’re looking to unplug and enjoy live entertainment, it’s a beautiful art.
The Boston Lyric Opera has some interesting features for the end of 2017:
- ”Tosca” – Set in the early 1800s, a singer named Floria Tosca must give the performance of her life if she wants to save the man she loves.
- ”The Nefarious, Immoral but Highly Profitable Enterprise of Mr. Burke & Mr. Hare” – Two men make a profitable enterprise out of gathering cadavers for science in the 1820s.
