Boston University Opera: Albert Herring by Benjamin Britten

Boston University Opera: Albert Herring by Benjamin Britten

Presented by Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music: Opera Institute and School of Theatre. An opera in three acts with music by Benjamin Britten Conducted by William Lumpkin with Stage Direction by Chrystal Manich Albert Herring is a comic opera set in the imaginary East Suffolk town of Loxford at the turn of the 20th century. The score contains some of Britten’s wittiest musical invention and his gifts for parody and caricature. Far from a mere farce: Albert is a sympathetic and credible figure who, tied to his mother’s apron-strings and frustrated by small-town pieties, embarks on a debauched ‘rake’s progress’, a theme fully in keeping with the composer’s favorite subject of the loss of innocence. Sung in English with supertitles Approximate running time: 2 hours 45 minutes; Emerson Paramount Center Robert J. Orchard Stage 559 Washington Street Boston, MA 02111; $20 General Public $15 BU Alumni, WGBH and WBUR members, senior citizens $10 CFA Membership $5 Students with valid ID Free with BU ID, two tickets, at the door, subject to availability; Tickets: emersonparamount.org
