Boston Lyric Opera’s mobile performance venue resumes free live performances throughout Boston this, bringing opera and popular music performances to neighborhoods from Charlestown to South Boston; the series kicked off this afternoon on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The next event comes on June 13th.

Conceived and created as a way to bring music to the public during COVID shutdowns,  the 26-foot-long Street Stage vehicle opens on three sides to offer a 270-degree view of performers. Audiences should bring blankets or lawn chairs. Support from HarborOne Bank and the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture subsidizes the free access. Details and registration are available HERE.
