Boston Opera Collaborative presents Albert Herring, by Benjamin Britten

Sat, 07/26/2014 - 7:30pm

Dedicated to producing dynamic opera that engages Boston audiences, Boston Opera Collaborative is excited to present Albert Herring, by Benjamin Britten.

Performances are presented with FREE ADMISSION through a generous grant from The Free for All Concert Fund, Inc.

This is the third collaboration with The Free for All Concert Fund, Inc., which has helped BOC bring performances throughout the Boston community, most recently 2012ʼs Orpheus in the Underworld. This year includes a FRIDAY MATINEE for opera fans of all ages. It also marks the third production in the historic Strand Theatre, located in the
heart of Bostonʼs Dorchester neighborhood.

Albert Herring, by Benjamin Britten, by arrangement with Boosey & Hawkes, Inc., publisher and copyright owner.

The scene: The zany residents of Loxford, England are preparing for their local May Day festivities.

The problem: The town lacks any young ladies sufficiently chaste to be named the May Queen.

The solution: The May Day committee identifies the local greengrocer, young Albert Herring, for the dubious honor of May King.

Follow Albert Herring as he discovers that sometimes it's OK to break the rules.
