ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
Intermezzo was born out of a vision to produce contemporary chamber operas and bring new and exciting works to the musical life in New England. Chamber opera merges the musical and dramatic flavor of grand opera with the immediacy of art song, performed on a smaller, more intimate scale. Our focus is on performing contemporary 20th and 21st century chamber works, particularly by American composers, and sung in English. Beginning in 2003 Intermezzo has pursued a path of bringing some of the area’s most exciting singers, composers, and directors together to produce classic, rarely performed works, and new commissions to the stage. We are very proud of our success over the past ten seasons, with over twenty-five productions, nine commissions, critical acclaim, and a growing following.
