Founded during the pandemic – the Summer Opera Season at NEMPAC started with Opera from the Balcony at Tresca Restaurant. This a one-of-a-kind experience combined exquisite operatic music with breathtaking panoramas, creating an enchanting evening you could not forget. 
In case you missed the magic from former years, here is Tenor David Rivera Bozón singing “Nessun dorma” from the Table 77 Balcony of Tresca in the rain!
Thank you to The Boston Globe for this feature on our “impressive level of ingenuity”.
