You made
it.

You’re on
your way home.
Memorial
Day weekend started just a minute ago at 5:01pm, and there’s only one thing standing between
you and the warm, fuzzy sun of Cape Cod—2 ½ hours in a cramped car with a
grandkid or two in tow and your son-in-law calling every five minutes to find
out
if-you’re-here-yet-and-can-you-please-pick-up-sunscreen-and-whale-watch-tickets-on-your-way-ok-thnx-bi.
We thought
you could use a little TLC en route!
Behold, BLO’s
Vacay Survival, err… Relaxation Kit.

It
features selections from BLO’s upcoming 2012/13 Season, including Mozart’s
comic gem Così Fan Tutte, Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, and Puccini’s heart-wrenching tragedy Madama Butterfly.
