“Playing without a conductor, the chamber ensemble wove an accompaniment that was both sensitive and energetic. Though only a glimpse into McLoskey’s opera, Thursday’s performance made a strong case for a work that will be heard in full next season.” — Boston Classical Review
Check out this great preview for our upcoming show on May 30 in The Eagle Tribune! This performance is the second-ever on our Emergence Series where we showcase our operas in development. This Emergence performance features The Captivity of Hannah Duston by Grammy award winning composer Lansing McLoskey and New York Times Bestseller librettist Glen Nelson.
Our upcoming May 17 NYC Premiere was featured in The New Yorker’s Goings On About Town :
“The feisty independent Boston company Guerilla Opera has built an oversized home-town profile by presenting a steady stream of offbeat commissioned works in resourceful, unfailingly imaginative productions.
As part of our mission to engage new audiences, we made Rumpelstiltskin available for FREE in our open dress rehearsal on Thursday, March 14. Attendees were treated to a run of the full show with a reception afterwards where we all discussed the opera. It was great to see so many new faces!
Our board of directors has appointed Aliana de la Guardia and Julia Noulin-Mérat as co-artistic directors! They have been working together to produce the experimental company’s world premiere operas and productions since 2009. Together, now they will serve as the faces of the company.
