They say it takes a village to raise a child. It certainly takes a village to create meaningful arts experiences for children. Here at Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) we often hear stories about what got people interested in opera. Sometimes it’s a production they attended as a child. Sometimes it’s a moment that comes later, like marrying an opera-lover. Last year at BLO’s annual Open House we put up a giant wall mural with the staff members’ stories and gave guests a place to write their own memories of what got them into opera. Now we want to hear from you. Leave us a comment and tell us about the person, performance, or production that sparked your interest in the arts (opera or otherwise). All those who leave comments will be entered into a random drawing for a free Macbeth t-shirt!
