MIND-BLOWING PRODUCTION | STUNNING CONTEMPORARY SCORE | TIMELY CAUTIONARY TALE

Bear witness to the story of Offred: one woman of many stripped of her name, identity, and personhood by a cruel and oppressive government regime. Offred desperately preserves her story, a simple act of defiance and resistance as dangerous as it is riveting. Margaret Atwood’s extraordinary, important novel—set in Boston and Cambridge—becomes one of BLO’s largest-ever productions, directed by theater icon Anne Bogart with a hypnotic, evocative score that bends the tenets of traditional opera and leaves audiences breathless.

First performances of a new edition by the composer, commissioned by Boston Lyric Opera
