Today is the first rehearsal for BLO's production of LIZZIE BORDEN - a newly commissioned  one act version of Jack Beeson's dramatic opera that in its original  three act version enjoyed  great success at New York City  Opera and at Glimmerglass. With the newly realized  chamber orchestration  that reveals anew  the inherent power of the score, performed in the appropriately Gothic ambiance of the Castle and directed by one of America's boldest and incisive directors, Christopher Alden, this promises to be  crucial  and unmissable part of BLO's season. To celebrate this important launching  , we today start features on Facebook and Twitter. We have been extremely fortunate to engage an intriguing  guest to help us here. The volatile , misunderstood  heroine (or murderess ?) Lizzie herself  a Facebook page - a   forum to present her  uncensored, possibly  revelatory , perhaps controversial  thoughts and musings - and a place where you can interact  (if you dare) with this most notorious, ambiguous and fascinating celebrity .
