Backstage glimpses with Boston Lyric Opera

What exactly is The BLO Bunch?

We get it. A lot of young people probably think opera is stuffy. Staid. For the older set. But what if opera – with its gorgeous divas, dashing maestros, grand costumes and over-the-top storylines – could be interactive? What if it could connect students with a broader community of other young lovers of music, high drama and theatre?  

That’s exactly what BLO aims to do this season, by offering students a chance to join The BLO Bunch. Not only can students save a ton of money on great seats by subscribing to Boston Lyric Opera’s full seasonal program, but students can connect online, in the theatre and after performances.

BLO Bunch members will attend the opera in a theatre filled with other students during the Wednesday Series this season at Boston’s elegant Shubert Theatre. During intermissions, they’ll have access to a special Twitter lounge, where they can broadcast to friends and followers how much fun they’re having. After the show, they’ll move on to a student-only after-party. Subscriptions start at just $51!

The first performance of the student series is November 10th.
To join the conversation, use the hashtag #BLOBunch. Look for the Twitter Lounge in the upper-mezzanine lobby, or tweet from your seat during intermission and keep an eye out for other BLO Bunch members in the theatre! We'll have our flip cameras and we'll be looking for the newest stars of our videos, like these.
When you leave the theatre on November 10th, don't leave the experience behind! Share your impressions and pictures on this blog! By submitting your photo, you could be the next face featured in The BLO Bunch online!
Passive theatre is so passe. See you at the opera!
