A Small Gift for our Friends - Happy Holiday!

You made it.

You’re on your way home.

Memorial Day weekend started just a minute ago at 5:01pm, and there’s only one thing standing between you and the warm, fuzzy sun of Cape Cod—2 ½ hours in a cramped car with a grandkid or two in tow and your son-in-law calling every five minutes to find out if-you’re-here-yet-and-can-you-please-pick-up-sunscreen-and-whale-watch-tickets-on-your-way-ok-thnx-bi.

We thought you could use a little TLC en route!

Behold, BLO’s Vacay Survival, err… Relaxation Kit.

It features selections from BLO’s upcoming 2012/13 Season, including Mozart’s comic gem Così Fan Tutte, Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, and Puccini’s heart-wrenching tragedy Madama Butterfly.  


Puccini’s Madama Butterfly
-          Un bel di vedremo (Cio-Cio San)
-          Addio, fiorito asil (Lieutenant Pinkerton)

Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte
-          Smanie implacabili (Dorabella)
-          Come scoglio (Fiordiligi)
-          Un aura amorosa (Ferrando)
-          Non siate ritrosi (Guglielmo)
-          Donne mie, le fate a tanti (Guglielmo)

Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman
-          Die Frist ist um (The Dutchman)
-          Senta's Ballad (Senta)
-          Summ und brumm (Chorus)

--> SirThomas Allen, who sings Guglielmo’s arias, will sing in and direct BLO’s production of Così Fan Tutte this coming season!

And some quizzes to play aloud together:

-          Diva! Diva!
-          Heroes and Villains
-          Did you know?
-          Opera Obscura
