We’re celebrating 35 seasons of opera by sharing your BLO stories. Your story is unique and makes BLO what it is today.

Here’s one from Noah:

" Macbeth at BLO was the first opera I've ever seen. As a child of the ‘80s, the theater I grew up with had more Schwarzenegger than Soprano; I didn't know Pre-Madonna from Prima Donna.  But opening night at Macbeth changed that for me. My husband and I were captivated by the story and enchanted by the chorus--but most of all we loved Lady Macbeth. She had us from open to close. Even after her death we were both hoping that a new ghost scene might get added to the plot just so she could give an encore."

What’s your BLO story?  Please share it with us below.  Or send it to [email protected].

In appreciation of sharing your story, all storytellers will receive an invitation to the 2012/2013 Season launch party in spring 2012.
