About working with BCO:
BCO presents operas in concert with piano accompaniment in the beautiful Grand Ballroom of the Engineers Club in Mount Vernon, Baltimore. Our jewel-box theater inside the gilded Garrett-Jacobs Mansion seats 222 guests, and we regularly sell out our performances to enthusiastic, vibrant audiences.
All operas will be performed memorized, some with minimal blocking. Though we are a concert opera company, our performances are very interactive and filled with dramatic intention. Our audiences are tremendously appreciative and enjoy seeing the singers up close.
The complete time commitment for a BCO concert opera usually comprises the 8-12 days directly preceding performances for principal artists (including comprimari), including coachings, music rehearsals and libretto reads with our pianist and conductor, a dress rehearsal, and two performances.
All performers are paid. BCO is a non-AGMA company.
