The Consul - Boston Conservatory at Berklee - Opera

Thursday, March 28, 2019 -
Sunday, March 31, 2019

Gian Carlo Menotti was an immigrant to the United States, and his Italian citizenship caused him to be labeled an "enemy alien" during World War II.

In 1950, he wrote The Consul in response to the many stories of refugees fleeing Eastern Europe after the war. Now, nearly 70 years later, The Consul is as powerful and relevant as it was when it was written....

Menotti insisted that The Consul have its premiere on Broadway, rather than in an opera house, so that it could be more accessible to the public at large. The show was a hit and won the Pulitzer Prize for music and a New York Drama Critics' Award.

The Consul will be sung in English with English supertitles.

Music and libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti
Conducted by Andrew Altenbach
Directed by Johnathon Pape
