Tomorrow marks the opening of the NEMPAC Opera Project’s second production: Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte in Faneuil Hall! The cast of singers, 35 piece orchestra and artistic team are eager and excited to open this opera tomorrow night.
Why Faneuil hall, you might ask? Take a look at our response in an interview for the Boston Musical Intelligencer:
“So often, smaller start up projects like ours have to take opera outside of Boston in order to find affordable performance venues; we have gone the opposite direction and have sought to challenge the boundaries of what a theatre space “has” to be by using exclusively non-traditional spaces. Last year, we took the provocative work of Bizet’s Carmen to St. Paul’s Cathedral in downtown Boston, and also provided a community outreach performance at Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. This year, we wanted to use a space close to the North End, our primary community, as well as a space that was special and unique to Boston. As such, the Faneuil Hall idea was born!”
Come experience opera at Faneuil Hall, Thursday 6/27 and Friday 6/28! Community outreach performance is at 4 pm, 6/30 at Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. Tickets are available online at www.nempacboston.org or at the door ( cash/check only).
