Final Dress Rehearsal Passes for Students

Final Dress Rehearsal

“I was able to convince some friends who had never seen an opera before to join and they enjoyed it! We are planning to attend other operas in the future.” –College Student

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.
