Season’s Greetings! As wintertime approaches and the first snowflakes hit the ground, many of us find ourselves retreating indoors in search of warmth and comfort - a crackling fire, a cozy sweater, and the company of loved ones. And thanks to your support of Berkshire Opera Festival, you also have the promise of another thrilling season of opera in 2023 to warm your heart and spirits during the months ahead.
BOF’s upcoming summer season will feature Puccini’s timeless tale of love and loss, La Bohème. We can't wait to share with you our new production of this beloved opera that has inspired generations of audiences with its exquisite music and beautiful exploration of our humanity. La Bohème also reminds us to cherish those people and things we value most, which we hope includes your support of Berkshire Opera Festival. Our ability to continue producing these extraordinary operas is only possible because of YOU!
