Odyssey Opera

Odyssey Opera's month-long (May-Jun) THE BRITISH INVASION opera festival continues with a one-night only performance (May 30th at 7:30 p.m. at Boston University Theatre, 264 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA) of five compelling monodramas. Odyssey Opera introduces audiences to a selection of the brightest stars among Boston’s emerging vocalists in a special evening of monodramas by five great British composers of the 20th century. The program includes Phaedra by Benjamin Britten (1913-76), Ophelia by Richard Rodney Bennett (1936-2012), Four Poems of St. Teresa of Avila by Lennox Berkeley (1903-89), King Harald's Saga by Judith Weir (b.1954), and Eight Songs for a Mad King by Peter Maxwell Davies (b.1934). Each of these works is a tour-de-force for a solo singer, sometimes inhabiting multiple roles.
