Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras (BYSO), internationally recognized youth musical organization, will bring to life a full opera once again! On Sunday, January 27th, BYSO will perform its 12th consecutive, full-length opera in Sanders Theatre at Harvard University and continues to be the only youth orchestra in the US to do so. Under the leadership of BYSO Music Director, Federico Cortese, the Boston Youth Symphony, BYSO’s premier orchestra will perform Puccini’s masterpiece La Bohème as part of its 2018-2019 Season.
"The performance of a full opera by a youth orchestra is a remarkable and rare accomplishment of which I am very proud,” says BYSO Music Director Federico Cortese. “Opera is a fantastic tool for the musical and personal growth of our students because of the rich and intricate musical and psychological storylines that weave in and out of the music in ways not seen in a standard symphony.”
*The running time of this performance of Puccini’s La Bohème is approximately 3 hours. Only children 10 years of age and older will be admitted to this performance.
