The Opera Gala

An Opening Celebration of our 40th Anniversary Season

Each year, BLO celebrates opening night of the Season with The Opera Gala, a theatrical, sparkling event that benefits Boston Lyric Opera’s primary mission to build curiosity, enthusiasm and support for opera. The Gala is an unforgettable way to launch a year of transformative opera and celebrate the art form with Boston’s premier artists and most dedicated patrons. With pre- and post-performance events, this is a highlight of the Season that is not to be missed.

Save the Date: Friday, September 23, 2016.

The Opera Gala 2016 is inspired by a retrospective of BLO’s 40 years of opera in Boston. The festivities begin with a cocktail hour at the Opera House itself, followed by the East Coast premiere performance of Bieito’s Carmen, and will conclude with a Gala dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Boston, just around the corner.
