This year, as part of our 2nd Season, the Boston Festival Orchestra is thrilled to present Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods" in collaboration with the NEMPAC Opera Project, as they kick off their 11th Season! The performances will be held at the Plaza Theatres at the Boston Center for the Arts on June 16th and June 18th, 2022 at 7:30 pm.
Alyssa Wang, BFO conductor, says, "It is with great pride that we look forward to our collaboration with the inspiring NEMPAC Opera Project! During these arduous times, we appreciate more than ever the chance to come together in the name of music, across multiple areas of performing arts, to create magic in front of a live audience. We hope that you will join us in June so that you can share in our collective joy and be amazed by the mastery, imagination, and insight of Mr. Sondheim."
Alexandra Dietrich, Artistic Director of the NEMPAC Opera Project remarks, "This is a first of many kinds for us - the first musical we have produced, the first collaboration with the ground-breaking Boston Festival Orchestra, and our first performance at the Boston Center for the Arts. We cannot think of a more fitting way for our organization to return to live audience, fully-staged performances than with a show that asks for artists from all backgrounds in the performing arts: theatre, dance, instrumentalists, and both musical theatre and opera singers. It's a statement of persevering through the unknown with a united goal of a better tomorrow and the eternal quest of "Happ(ier) Ever After. To be able to dedicate this planned season to Mr. Sondheim is also a blessing to his memory and to the gift of his canon."
