Boston Lyric Opera Continues Podcast with Jennifer Johnson Cano & Anne Bogart

By Francisco Salazar

Boston Lyric Opera’s podcast AT ITS (s)CORE opens Season Two with legendary theater and opera director Anne Bogart and mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano.

The first episode will showcase Cano and Bogart discussing their work together on BLO’s 2019 production of Poul Ruders’s opera, “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The pair will discuss the opera’s majestic and challenging music, including how Ruders “created a sonic world that felt like the experience of the characters in the story. This wasn’t Mozart… it felt chaotic and intense.”

Bogart will also talk about tackling a story so many people know.

AT ITS (s)CORE can be found on Boston Lyric Opera’s free digital platform and is a bi-weekly podcast centered on a single piece of music that sparks a conversation between artists.
