The Boston Cecilia’s concert performance of Scott Wheeler’s one-act opera on 1st April, 2007, in New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, was hailed with a Boston Globe headline: “CONSTRUCTION OF BOSTON is a love note to the city”. Drawing on a cast of brilliant, young, mostly Boston-based vocal artists, a chorus of established reputation in music old and new, and an outstanding orchestra comprised of first rank professional instrumentalists, Wheeler’s witty, first foray into the operatic genre got a brilliant reading under the baton of veteran conductor Donald Teeters: “Teeters led everything with remarkable sensitivity to both text and architecture” (Boston Phoenix).
