When a traveling troupe arrives to perform in a bustling town, the secrets and jealousies among them threaten to explode onstage—with deadly consequences. BLO presents its first-ever Pagliacci through a carnival-style installation that mirrors the “play within a play” of the opera and invites audiences to step into the drama.

Featuring Rafael Rojas, Lauren Michelle, Michael Mayes, Tobias Greenhalgh, and Omar Najmi

Pagliacci and Giulio Cesare will be presented within the DCR Steriti Memorial Rink in Boston’s North End. BLO previously used the large, ground-level facility for our May 2019 production of Trouble in Tahiti and Arias & Barcarolles, as well as a rehearsal space for its 2016 production of Carmen, which required choreography that included six Mercedes Benzes.

ACCESSIBILITY: Steriti Rink is accessible by stairs or a ramp to the main entrance.

RESTROOMS: All restrooms are straight ahead when you enter the lobby and are marked by signs.

AMENITIES: A self-serve coat check will be available in the lobby.
