    Boston Opera Collaborative presents The Crucible

    What happens when you tell a lie? Based on Arthur Miller’s play of the same name, Robert Ward's Pulitzer Prize-winning opera The Crucible recounts the tragic consequences of a jealous falsehood. Over 300 years after the Salem witch trials, this story of frenzy and integrity still fascinates, and Boston Opera Collaborative looks forward to bringing it to Massachusetts audiences.

      Consciences are, appropriately, stripped bare in Boston Opera Collaborative’s fine new production of “The Crucible.’’ After all, Robert Ward’s 1961 operatic adaptation of Arthur Miller’s play is all about witchcraft: Puritan Salem torn by reckless accusations, the flawed-but-noble farmer John Proctor and his wife snared in the irrational mania. What good would common sense do?

      The Crucible is the definition of the quintessential witch hunt play (if such a thing as a quintessential witch hunt play exists). From young girls running wild through the forest, to secret love affairs gone wrong and the ever powerful church looming in the background, it’s all the best parts of opera poured into one show. Robert Ward’s musical interpretation is full and lush and is a perfect match to the story line. It’s even more impressive to take on the show in New England and so close to Salem, because the residents here have that extra bit of knowledge of the area and the history of the play. As I told my companion, in Opera, the music itself shapes everything, and with Ward’s treatment, you could literally sit with your eyes closed and understand exactly what was happening just by hearing it.
