Mozart’s magical world is unearthed when a group of college students goes on an archeological trip to the Yucatan and one is bitten by a snake. Celebrating the depth and breadth of Boston’s artistic talent, BLO has assembled a cast and creative team with national and international credentials, and roots in the Boston arts community, including Andrew Garland, Meredith Hansen, and Zach Borichevsky. This new English language adaptation by former BLO Artistic Director Leon Major, Kelley Rourke and our own John Conklin showcases Mozart’s exuberant score. The October 4 world premiere will inaugurate The Opera Gala: A Season Opening Celebration.
