Boston Lyric Opera's Opera Hits the Books: Circe is going VIRTUAL on Wednesday, April 22! Join us at 7:00 PM via Zoom for our spring book discussion as explore Madeline Miller's fascinating novel, Circe.
Ancient gods, myths, legends, and tragic romance. A #1 New York Times Bestseller, Circe gives a fresh take on the famous sorceress of Greek mythology. Best known from Homer's Odyssey, this retelling gives Circe's legend a bold, revolutionary retelling that gives its heroine distinct agency and profound emotional resonance, as she struggles between the god she is, and the mortals she loves.
BLO picked this novel as the perfect pairing for our spring operas, Norma and Giulio Cesare, both of which feature equally captivating, bold women whose stories take place during the same era.
