Opera Guild

Boston Baroque Opera Guild

Give voice to baroque opera and song

A dynamic group of volunteers who give voice to Baroque & Classical opera and vocal performers by assisting and supporting Boston Baroque’s yearly productions of important and sometimes rarely performed works. Through its many programs and initiatives, the Opera Guild inspires conversations about opera within its membership, and works to encourage an appreciation of the art form within the community.

Established in 2013, the Boston Baroque Opera Guild looks to support and promote our vocal performances through outreach, education, and development, to sustain the growth of America’s premier period-instrument orchestra and chorus.

Propelled by acclaim for our recent opera productions, the 2016-2017 season will further push the boundaries of how we present our opera productions, and will feature local, national and international vocal artists from some of the world’s most prestigious operatic stages.


Opera Guild Producing Circle membership ($1,000+) offers the opportunity to sponsor a guest artist and attend our series of popular Vocal Showcases and special events. Held in the ‘salon style’, each Vocal Showcase offers the occasion to meet and listen to some of our guest artists in a private and more intimate social setting.
