Final Dress Rehearsal Passes for Students

BLO invites high school and college students to attend the final dress rehearsals of its productions. Often this is students’ first experience with opera. Student study materials are provided. In exchange for passes, BLO requests student responses about the production. Stand-out responses may be featured in BLO media. Passes are first come, first served and subject to availability. The request period closes two weeks before the final dress rehearsal.
