Event description

Description

Esther Nelson, the Stanford Calderwood General & Artistic Director of Boston Lyric Opera, is a tour de force in Boston’s cultural community and American opera today. Responsible for everything ranging from artistic programming and casting to the Company’s business model and fiscal health, her vision charts the course forward for the largest and longest-lived professional opera company in New England. Ms. Nelson joins the MIT Women’s League to give a preview of BLO’s 2017/18 Season, from its unforgettable music to insider information on the singers, costumes, and sets that will make these masterpieces come to life. With three works from the 20th century and one brand-new World Premiere, she shares how the 2017/18 Season came together and how it demonstrates opera’s incredible versatility, from beloved classics to the fresh and urgent for today’s audiences.

Feel free to bring your lunch, and we will provide beverages and dessert.

This event is open to the MIT Women's League and wider MIT community.

Attendees will be added to the MIT Women's League mailing list.
