Boston Lyric Opera Makes Trouble In Tahiti At Hockey Rink, Part Two

The Boston Lyric Opera has been working out of different spaces while seeking a permanent home. In May, it presented two short operas by Leonard Bernstein, Trouble In Tahiti and Arias & Barcarolles, in a 15,000 square foot hockey rink. Because both operas treat themes of dreams and disillusionment, the team combined the two into one piece, set in the swanky El Morocco, a 1950s style Manhattan nightclub, where the story of an unhappy marriage unfolds.
