Arias Aloft: Euphoria


About Arias Aloft: Euphoria

Join us for a unique, magical evening of opera, musical theater, cabaret, and circus at Governor Hutchinson’s Field! Spread a blanket on the ground, or bring your own chair for a wonderful family-friendly evening.

Circus 617 and Opera on Tap Boston combine two thrilling art forms for a one-of-a-kind event in a stunning outdoor location. Featuring vocal acrobatics and physical virtuosity courtesy of some of Boston’s leading circus artists and classical singers, this performance will showcase opera, musical theater and cabaret classics paired with breathtaking original circus acts. Inspired by the unique natural surroundings of the Trustees of Reservations properties, “Arias Aloft: Euphoria” explores the use of nature as a metaphor for human emotion.

Circus 617 is a collective dedicated to highlighting Boston-area circus artists, choreographers, and directors in new works of contemporary circus, created right here in the city we love. Circus 617 productions meld the spectacular, expressive physicality of circus with theatrical and musical methods of storytelling. Founded in 2020, Circus 617 received a LAB grant from the Boston Foundation in 2021 to create their debut ensemble production, Gathering the Threads. Circus 617 now performs around Boston and beyond.

Opera on Tap is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote opera as a viable, living, and progressive art form by taking it out of the concert hall and putting it into venues where people least expect it. The company was founded in Brooklyn in 2005, and Opera on Tap’s Boston chapter launched in 2011 with an inaugural show at Cambridge’s Club Oberon. With live shows in unconventional venues ranging from public parks to bars to farmer’s markets across greater Boston, OOT has introduced audiences of all ages and cultural backgrounds to opera in performance formats that are fun, inclusive and accessible.
