Take a journey in words, music, and images to the eccentric, impulsive, erotic Paris of Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Jean Cocteau, Gertrude Stein, Josephine Baker, Erik Satie, and Francis Poulenc, where a civilization still recovering from the trauma of the Great War sought freedom and release in the uncharted depths of the unconscious imagination. See another view of Paris in Boston Lyric Opera’s exploration of the City of Light in the 20th century, inspired by Visiting Masterpieces: Pairing Picasso,” and two spring operas, Werther and The Merry Widow, BLO productions both set in the iconic city.
