about

Adapted from fable by the Brothers Grimm, Gunther Schuller’s The Fisherman and His Wife tells the tale of a poor fisherman who discovers a magical fish who grants a series of ever more extravagant rewards to him and his wife. Originally commissioned by the Junior League of Boston for their 60th anniversary and dedicated to the children of Boston, this short opera premiered in May 1970 and was adapted for WBZ-TV that fall. Full of wit and humor, The Fisherman and His Wife was not performed again until BMOP and Odyssey Opera resurrected it in November 2015. This premiere studio recording of the opera adds to the legacy of a pillar of the Boston musical community.
