Free Offerings in the Berkshires
Free Concert: Much Ado About Shakespeare
Berkshire Opera Festival presents an evening of music featuring texts by the great William Shakespeare, sung by members of our internationally-renowned cast of Falstaff. Artistic Director Brian Garman will guide you on a journey through the ages to explore how different composers were inspired by the words of the man largely thought of as the greatest writer of the English language. This free recital will give you an opportunity to hear our mainstage artists for the first time in the season and to whet your appetite for our performances of Falstaff. Bring your family and friends and enjoy this musical delight in the gorgeous setting of Edith Wharton’s estate, The Mount.
