“QUITE AN ACHIEVEMENT . . .
"Concert Opera is a form that invites imagination,and I have always been a fan of letting the audience create the picture themselves. Over many years at VocalEssence I have produced a number of productions that evoke this idea -- and they have always been
successful for the audience. Never
underestimate the audience!"
Artistic Director and Founder
Concert opera establishes a more intimate relationship between the audience and the performers. It lets the orchestra, chorus, and conductor become equal partners with the singers. It allows the audience to concentrate more fully on the music and the performance. It gives the audience members the freedom to create an ideal production in their imagination.
–Michael Sims, Concert Opera of Boston
