  1. FIDELIO: I attended opening night in Faneuil Hall and urge everybody to see this production. It’s the best ‘musical’ in town. The audience was rapt and riveted. When the bad guy got caught and taken away, the audience cheered and booed just like in the old-time movies. 🤣The orchestra was perfection. The casting was pretty much perfect and EVERY voice was superior! These are not students of NEMPAC, they are all individually selected professionals. The BLO should pay attention. Best bargain in Boston Friday and Saturday nights. GO!!!
