Edinburgh, 1828. The city’s world-renowned anatomy schools suffer from a cadaver shortage. Two industrious men—William Burke and William Hare—find lucrative work by murdering disenfranchised citizens and selling their corpses to Dr. Knox’s academy. Brutally funny and highly theatrical, irreverent and fast-paced, this chamber opera is based on real events.


The Nefarious, Immoral but Highly Profitable Enterprise of Mr. Burke & Mr. Hare, music by Julian Grant and libretto by Mark Campbell, has its world premiere with Boston Lyric Opera Nov 8-12. For more information, click HERE.
