IMMERSE YOURSELF in what The Times, London hails as “The world’s leading festival of early music.” June 11-18, 2017!

Ticket packages for the 2017 Festival operas are NOW ON SALE!

Save the dates for the 2017 Festival—June 11–18, 2017—featuring the fully staged operatic centerpiece André Campra's Le Carnaval de Venise. This gorgeous opéra-ballet promises a dazzling parade of extravagant costumes, breathtaking dance, and phenomenal music drawing inspiration from French and Italian traditions. First performed at the theatre of the Palais-Royal in Paris in 1699, the story follows the trials of young love set against the spectacle of Venice during Carnival season. BEMF's new, fully-staged production is sure to be a feast for the senses.

Le Carnaval de Venise is just the centerpiece of a weeklong celebration of Early Music with chamber opera, concerts, the world-famous Exhibition, and more than a hundred events to enjoy June 2017 in Boston.
