The must-see event of the Fall Season! Boston Lyric Opera's 40th Anniversary Season launches with Calixto Bieto's provocative, groundbreaking production of Bizet's Carmen, bringing opera back to Boston Opera House.
BLO's 40th Anniversary Season launches with the bicoastal American premiere of Calixto Bieito's Carmen in a co-production with San Francisco Opera – marking the director's long-awaited U.S. opera debut. Set in the arid earthiness of 1970's post-Franco Spanish North Africa, this raw and cinematic vision is a powerful account of the defiantly free-spirited woman and her obsessive lover, set to Bizet's intoxicating score.
A genre-defying work of political theatre, Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower brings to rousing musical life Butler's acclaimed science fiction novel of the same name. Written by Toshi Reagon, who Vibe Magazine called "one helluva rock'n'roller-coaster ride," in collaboration with her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon, the iconic singer and founder of the vocal group Sweet Honey in the Rock, Parable of the Sower becomes a mesmerizing theatrical work of rare power and beauty that reveals deep insights on gender, race and the future of human civilization.
Parable of the Sower harnesses 200 years of African-American song traditions to tell the story of young Lauren Olamina, who lives in a not-so-distant America, where climate change has driven society to violence and the brink of extinction.
