For the first time, Boston Lyric Opera hosts its free Open House with our Opera Annex production, Jack Beeson’s  Lizzie Borden. Investigate the Borden murders, discover how an empty space is transformed into an opera space, and experience opera in a casual, exciting way.
Performances: Inspired by  Lizzie Borden, see a selection of famous, musical murder scenes featuring BLO Artists.
Meet the real Lizzie Borden: Hear from Borden case expert Stefani Koorey, Ph.D., about the real woman suspected in one of America’s most infamous crimes.  Join the grand jury and explore case evidence and witness testimony in a special exhibit. Cast your vote of guilty or not guilty.
Backstage Tours: Get an inside look into the production with set models, costume displays, and make-up demonstrations.
Want to volunteer at BLO’s Open House?  Contact David Lucey at for more information.
