255 Elm Street, Somerville, MA

This Halloween, WholeTone Opera presents The Werewolf, a fiercely queer opera. An adaptation of Le Loup-garou by Louise Bertin, and visually inspired by silent horror films of the early 20th century, The Werewolf will have audiences howling with fear and laughter this fall. A cursed loup-garou (aka werewolf) is terrorizing a quiet village full of secrets, while seducing young brides. Will the secret witch, Alice's heart be stolen by the werewolf, or will Vincent, a sassy young nobleman, be the one to find true love at long last? Performances of The Werewolf will take place at The Rockwell, in Davis Square, October 20th through 31st. Come to a late-night performance on October 21st or 28th and show off your inner beast, demon, fairy, etc. with a costume. The Werewolf is sung in English and accompanied by chamber orchestra.

They hope to join forces with other local opera companies in the process of revitalizing Boston’s opera community, offering alternative productions with fresh, gripping performances. They rehearse and perform in Somerville at WholeTone Studios near Davis Square.
