Arlington resident Daniel Fridley is scheduled to perform in "The Prodigal Son" by Benjamin Britten at 7 p.m. Oct. 21 and 22 at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, 138 Tremont St. in downtown Boston.
The opera, presented by Boston- and UK-based Enigma Chamber Opera and directed by Kirsten Cairns, retells the biblical parable about two brothers — one loyal to the family business and the other tempted into squandering his inheritance — and their forgiving father.
First presented in 1968 as a "parable for church performance," it has a libretto by William Plomer.
"The Prodigal Son” features seven male singers portraying the gathered men who bookend the main story and characters in that story. Fridley, a bass, performs as a chorus member, portraying various characters throughout the production.
The performance will also be available for streaming on the Enigma Chamber Opera YouTube page for one week starting Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.
