In announcing the retirement of Esther Nelson, Stanford Calderwood General & Artistic Director of Boston Lyric Opera, Michael J. Puzo, chair of the BLO Board of Directors and a partner at Hemenway & Barnes said,

“Esther Nelson has had such a profound impact on Boston Lyric Opera and the industry in Boston and beyond, it’s hard to imagine the Company without her. Esther’s tenure moved BLO from being a strong regional company into being a leading national and international entity. It’s emblematic of her professionalism and commitment that she has worked carefully with the board and her colleagues to ensure a seamless transition. This moment finds BLO vibrant, artistically strong, and poised to take the next step in defining what a 21st century opera company looks like.”
