Gil Rose, conductor

Since its founding in 2013, Odyssey Opera has become a pillar of the Boston arts community. Their corner of the market? Top-tier productions of rarely heard, often forgotten operatic gems. And whether those productions be by Wagner, Vaughn Williams, Mozart, or Korngold, two things are always true: the singing is superb, and audiences leave Jordan Hall wondering "why don't we hear that piece more often?"
