The Opera Gala

Each year, BLO celebrates opening night of the Season with The Opera Gala, a theatrical, sparkling event that benefits Boston Lyric Opera’s Jane & Steven Akin Emerging Artists and the Company’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.
