Boston Conservatory at Berklee to Present Opera 'Albert Herring'

The comic opera by Benjamin Britten will open the spring 2022 Center Stage performance season for the Conservatory.

March 18, 2022

Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s spring Center Stage collection begins with Benjamin Britten’s beloved comic opera Albert Herring. The performance will take place in person at the Boston Conservatory Theater from Thursday, March 24 through Sunday, March 27.

Conducted by Andrew Altenbach and directed by Nathan Troup, the opera explores the themes of innocence and experience through a tale about coming of age in a small town. This springtime comedy, sung in English with English supertitles, abounds in musical wit, social satire, and hilarious caricature, and is performed by an ensemble cast and chamber orchestra.

“This opera is a hilarious and poignant coming-of-age story by Benjamin Britten, one of history's greatest composers,” said Altenbach. “Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s talented students will bring a smile to the face of any audience member as they interpret this delightful tale into a beautiful performance.”

Albert Herring will be presented at the Boston Conservatory Theater, located at 31 Hemenway Street in Boston, Massachusetts, at 8:00 p.m. from Thursday, March 24 through Saturday, March 26, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 27. Tickets are $15 to $20 for regular seating; $10 to $15 for senior citizens, Conservatory alumni, WGBH members; and $5 to $10 for non-Berklee students.
