Boston Lyric Opera

527 Tremont St, Boston, MA   (view map)

The latest production in Boston Lyric Opera's Opera Annex series is its new production of Viktor Ullmann's Emperor of Atlantis, the dark yet comic piece he composed at TerezĂ­n in 1943 (he died soon afterward at Auschwitz). Stephen Lipsitt conducts at Calderwood Pavilion. BLO returns to the Shubert Theatre with Handel's satirical and ravishing Agrippina (it could have been called "Naughty Nero"), in a production borrowed from Glimmerglass and New York City Opera. Gary Thor Wedow makes his BLO conducting debut, and the stars are Caroline Worra as one of antiquity's monster mothers, the Met's brilliant and adorable coloratura Kathleen Kim as Poppea, and counter-tenor David Trudgen as the young Nero.

Viktor Ullmann's The Emperor of Atlantis, or Death Quits, with Kevin Burdette [Death/Loudspeaker], Andrew Wilkowske [Emperor Overall], John Mac Master [Harlequin], Kathryn Skemp [Bubikopf], Jamie Van Eyck [Drummer], and Julius Ahn [A Soldier]
