Backstage glimpses with Boston Lyric Opera

Let's go to the opera!

To
see or not to see, that is the question. For a Theatre Studies major and someone who loves the performing
arts, I try to see as many shows as I can. Going to school in Boston has now made
that more accessible for me. And student rush tickets? Best invention in the
whole world. Whoever thought of that deserves an honorary award.
But
here’s something I’ve been thinking about though: Tosca. Opera? What’s that? Of
course, in general, I know what an opera is. But really, what is it? What does
it really feel like to see it onstage? How will it feel when I can witness it
in person? How moved will I be when I can see it all happening in front of me? And
wait… Student subscription at the Boston Lyric Opera? Is that REAL?!? This is
exactly what I need. How else am I going to experience opera? This is the
perfect antidote for my opera curiosity without leaving my wallet completely
empty.
So
get ready! I’m breaking out my pretty dresses and heels. I’m going to the
opera
