FREE Opera! What more can an opera lover ask for?

With our FREE concert with the Landmarks Orchestra on the Esplanade just one week away, we are dusting off our picnic baskets and planning how to best make the most of a lovely evening of live music.
Around the World in 80 Minutes takes audience members on a sweeping operatic journey – for free! Making musical stops in France, Italy, Japan, the US, and even Sri Lanka, the program features excerpts from popular works by Puccini, Wagner, Mozart, and Bernstein, several of which are drawn from Boston Lyric Opera’s upcoming 2012/2013 Season. Featuring singers from BLO and led by Music Director David Angus. More information can be found here.

In the spirit of picnic planning we've rounded up a few links to help you decide just what to pack in that basket! [Just remember no alcohol this time :)]
