Boston Lyric Opera invites high school and college students to attend the Final Dress Rehearsal of In the Penal Colony, an opera by Philip Glass, on Monday, November 9 at 7:30pm at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts.

UPDATE: Please note that we have reached capacity for In the Penal Colony Final Dress Rehearsal requests. As this is a unique venue, space is extremely limited and due to a high volume of requests, we have moved to a waitlist. If you are a student or teacher who is interested in attending, please email or call Audience Services at 617.542.6772 to put your name on the waitlist and inquire about procedures.


Passes are distributed on a first come, first served basis. To learn more about the operas in our Season, please visit the 2015/16 Season page, our blog, In the Wings, or our Facebook and Twitter pages. In exchange for free passes, we ask for written responses about the production to BLO’s Community Engagement Department at Stand-out student responses will be featured on the BLO blog.
