'Ainadamar' : Since its Tanglewood premiere in 2003, Osvaldo Golijov's flamenco-infused opera has been musically revised and theatrically reimagined. It's also been performed all around the country and is now finally arriving in the composer's home town. Opera Boston mounts a production that was first conceived for the Santa Fe Opera, with Dawn Upshaw (pictured), Jessica Rivera, and Kelly O'Connor in the lead roles. Peter Sellars, an eloquent champion of Golijov's music, is directing. The opera itself is a beautifully voiced meditation on the life and loves of the writer Federico Garcia Lorca, and his murder during the Spanish Civil War. Gil Rose conducts. Oct. 19, 21, and 23, Cutler Majestic Theatre, 617-451-9944 or operaboston.org -- JEREMY EICHLER
