Featuring selections from Puccini’s tale of lust, love and revolution, Tosca – which also opens BLO’s 2017/18 Season in October – take a concert tour through the music of the stage with works by some of opera’s most beloved composers, including Mozart, Beethoven, and Leonard Bernstein, the Massachusetts native.

Boston Public Library Concerts in the Courtyard:
The courtyard of the Central Library in Copley Square, one of Boston’s most beautiful spaces, is filled with music during free, one-hour concerts throughout the summer. The courtyard hosts music that ranges from jazz to classical and from world to folk.

Concerts are moved to the newly renovated Rabb Hall in the event of inclement weather.
