Béatrice et Bénédict
October 21 - October 25, 2011
Béatrice et Bénédict by Hector Berlioz
Based on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Berlioz’ lovely, luminous Béatrice et Bénédict stars Julie Boulianne, whose “truly lush lyric mezzo-soprano” (Opera News) is bringing her wide acclaim, and Sean Panikkar, a “dashing tenor with apt stage presence and a full-voiced, exceptional sound” (Opera News). Mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor (last seen here as Federico García Lorca in Ainadamar) appears as Ursule and Heather Buck returns as Héro.
Sung in French with English titles
All performances at the Cutler Majestic Theatre,
219 Tremont Street, Boston
