1.19.19 Boston Opera Collaborative: The Scarlet Ibis

Saturday • January 19, 2019   |   8:00 pm 10:00 pm

Boston Opera Collaborative returns to Pickman Hall with the Boston premiere of a beautiful, haunting new opera based on the beloved short story by James Hurst. The Scarlet Ibis tells the story of Doodle, a remarkable disabled boy whose older brother pushes him to be “normal.” Set in a mysterious swampland with a Southern Gothic vibe, The Scarlet Ibis combines singers, puppetry and a score that is both minimalist and lushly chromatic to explore notions of physical wholeness, mystical otherness, and the power to soar above physical limitations. Performed with a nine-piece orchestra.
