After leaving its long-time home at the Shubert Theater, Boston Lyric Opera will play at four different venues in Boston and look at the same time for a new permanent home.

The 2016-2017 season-opener is a staging of Carmen by director Calixto Bieito, a Spanish director making his long-awaited U.S. opera debut. BLO is co-producing with San Francisco Opera in a bicoastal American premiere, with San Francisco offering the American debut in May 2016. The performances will take place at the Boston Opera House where in the last 25 years no professional has been produced. BLO will stage Greek by

Mark-Anthony Turnage at the Emerson/Paramount Center , Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress at the historic Emerson/Cutler Majestic Theater for a new p and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, in the intimate John Hancock Hall at the Back Bay Events Center.
