Backstage glimpses with Boston Lyric Opera

Oh the DRAMA!

The world of opera is one filled with color and magic. The
scores and librettos written by the great composers and new composers bring
exciting stories to life. When my friends ask me why I love to go and see an
opera it is a simple answer; I love the melodramatic and exciting tales that
are brought to life through the rich music. Boston Lyric Opera brings these old
and new masterpieces to life with a new spin. BLO’s artistic staff is not
afraid to add a contemporary edge to Bizet’s Carmen or find a creepy location for Brittan’s The Turn of the Screw.  In
addition, the staff and patrons of BLO are welcoming and they’re there to teach
new opera lovers what ever they can. Boston Lyric Opera builds a warm, fun, and
exciting community for opera that everyone, young, old and even us the in
between, should have the chance to experience! I am extremely excited to see
what new twists Boston Lyric Opera has in store for its community this year in its
new season of operas!
