Boston Early Music Festival has earned a distinguished international reputation for reviving Baroque opera masterpieces with today’s leading operatic superstars and a wealth of instrumental talent.
Infused with the latest information on period singing, orchestral performance, scenic design, costuming, dance, and staging, these performances take the form of full-scale spectacle operas, salon-style chamber operas, exceptional concert performances, national and international tours, radio and internet broadcasts, and acclaimed recording projects. BEMF operas reproduce the Baroque’s stunning palette of sound and sight, expertly led by Artistic Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs, and creatively reimagined for the stage by Opera Director Gilbert Blin.
Since 2008, BEMF has taken its signature level of artistry and scholarship to smaller-scale Baroque operas with their annual Chamber Opera Series.
Presented in Boston over Thanksgiving weekend, these intimate productions incorporate stunning costumes, Baroque staging and dance, and world-class musicianship. Past Chamber Opera Series productions have been featured on tour throughout North America, winning acclaim in New York City, Vancouver, Seattle, and Kansas City. Beginning November 30th, Miami will be added to the list.
