New Marlborough, Mass. — Berkshire Opera Festival (BOF) is pleased to announce its Season Kickoff and Fundraiser, "Café Society," on June 11 at 5:00pm at Gedney Farm. Guests will be treated to musical selections by special guest artist Teresa Perrotta and BOF’s very own Maestro Brian Garman. The event - a nod to Café Momus from the opera - will raise funds in support of BOF’s 2023 season mainstage production of Puccini’s timeless tale of love and loss, La Bohème.

The evening will begin with a cocktail hour and silent auction in the garden. Guests will then enjoy a delicious three-course meal and a live auction, where among other opportunities, they can bid to appear in La Bohème as a supernumerary (a non-speaking “extra”). Ticket and sponsorship details are below and on BOF's website.

Single Tickets: $250 each

Standard Tables (8 guests): $2,000 per table

​Premium Tables (limit 6 tables): $3,000 per table *SOLD OUT* 

Sponsorship opportunities are available from $500 - $10,000

Tickets should be reserved by May 19

Attire is "Berkshires Chic," festive, but not fancy
