Music at the Mahaiwe:
BOC's recent purchase of the Gans Appliance building on Railroad Street in Great Barrington created a unique opportunity to transform this historic structure into a gracious reception hall for our supporters and a year-round art gallery. "The Gallery" officially opens in August with Tim Schantz & Friends, an exhibition featuring Schantz's pastels as well as the works of Brother Thomas and Mark Davis.
Berkshire Opera Company's mission is to help bring world class professional opera to the Berkshires and especially to people who have never been exposed to it before. Now in its 17th year in a brand new location, Berkshire Opera Company.
Founder Rex Hearn singlemindedly created this organization, trying to duplicate the summer festivals of his native Great Britain. Emmy and Peabody-Award winner Sanford Fisher brought in opera performers from all over the world and created some of the most innovative productions in the BOC's history, as well as making the modern and comfortable Koussevitzky Performing Arts Center the company's summer home, offering greater access to the world of the opera.
Education and Community Outreach
Berkshire Opera Company is particularly proud of its innovative educational programs, community outreach efforts, audience enrichment activities, and artist development initiatives.
Cosi Fan Tutte
Mozart's comic masterpiece explores complexity of love and the frailties of human nature. You won't want to miss the laughs, the heartbreaks, and the richness of this true ensemble opera - a work many believe is one of Mozart's greatest musical achievements.
New this year!
Join us as we fill the Mahaiwe with music to celebrate the start of the theater's restoration and to preview our 2002 season and seasons to come.
