Every other summer, the city of Boston becomes the ultimate destination for connoisseurs of early music when the Boston Early Music Festival mounts its extraordinary “weeklong extravaganza of early music” (The Boston Herald), jam-packed with fully-staged opera performances, concerts, lectures, dance workshops, Fringe Concerts, and our world-famous Exhibition. Founded in 1981, BEMF was the brainchild of dedicated instrument makers and performers living in the Boston area, who saw a unique opportunity to introduce American musicians and audiences to the innovative work of rediscovering music of the past. Since then, BEMF has forged new ground in the field of early music, historically-informed performance, and Baroque opera, thrilling audiences with modern-premiere performances brought to life by the most talented and exhilarating musicians from around the world through the biennial Festivals and annual concert series in Boston and New York. The 2013 Festival will feature a fully staged production of Handel's Almira as its operatic centerpiece.
