Anywhere, Boston, MA

Boston Lyric Opera’s Opera Hits the Books is going VIRTUAL on Wednesday, May 20! Join us to discuss Celeste Ng’s hit novel, Little Fires Everywhere.

In this #1 New York Times best-selling novel, an enigmatic artist and her daughter move to an idyllic bubble of a suburb of Cleveland, upending the lives of the picture-perfect Richardson family. Having heard so much about this novel and the new series now streaming on Hulu, we selected Little Fires Everywhere to see what we’ve been missing. Perhaps pair your reading with a virtual viewing party of the show! As you read, reflect on what opera you might pair with the novel. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
