Young Opera at Boston Court

Unless you are a devotee of the subculture, there aren’t many opportunities to hear live opera singers outside of the concert hall. There’s an opera-singing magician who shows up to Indelible Ink sometimes, but besides him, the only time I’ve heard opera is, well, at the opera. There’s no “Behind the Music” for the opera world, though that would probably be really entertaining.

If you could use more out-of-context opera in your life, Boston Court has you covered. This Saturday is the LA Opera Young Artists Recital, part of both BC’s spring music series and the Opera’s Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program. Will the next Maria Callas be there? A very distinct possibility.
