Lowell House Opera

Harvard Rituals

For almost three-quarters of a century, the Lowell House Opera has given the Harvard community, and the community at large, something to sing about.

Each year the musical extravaganza transforms the stately dining hall into a dramatic stage set complete with full orchestra, elaborate costumes, and plenty of drama, deception, love, and laughter.

Established in 1938, the Lowell House Opera is the longest continually performing opera company in New England. Equal to its impressive history is its diverse composition. Performers represent an eclectic mix that includes Harvard undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni, as well as music students from the local area and community residents young and old.

This year’s production is the opera “Tosca” by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini, playing through Saturday (March 6).
