Opera Boston's Béatrice et Bénédict

By Brian McCreath

Oct. 20

Opera Boston's first production of the season is Béatrice et Bénédict, an opera by Hector Berlioz based on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing

Another step in forging its reputation as a presenter of rarely performed works, Opera Boston turned to director David Kneuss for this production, and he chose to set the opera in an idealized Italy of the 1950's.

To learn more about the production, I met with David Kneuss and tenor Sean Panikkar at the Majestic Theatre in Boston.  Below, you'll find the interview, a slideshow of images from the production, and a preview video.  Also, visit ArtSceNE for Five Questions For Sean Panikkar.
