Ah the magic of opera in an unexpected space. My favorite thing about listening to opera singers in spaces outside of our traditional performance space of the Shubert Theatre is the intimacy, but more importantly, the feeling that I am engulfed in the power of their voices. When we have the privilege of listening to opera singers practice for small concerts in our conference room, I am blown away by the wall of sound they create. It is truly incredible. And that magic was re-created on Sunday night at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston at the Opera Conference 2011 Welcome Reception hosted by OPERA America, Boston Lyric Opera, Opera Boston and Bank of America.
