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!
