Make a Night of It

A visit to BLO is just the start of a fantastic night out in downtown Boston


The Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau’s hotel finder can help you find the perfect hotel in the Theatre District – visit to get started!

Opening Night

Opening Night of each BLO production features exclusive and thrilling festivities, including a pre-opera dinner and a post-opera reception for those who purchase the Opening Night package. These events are extraordinary opportunities to mingle with the cast and creative teams as well as socialize with the opera community, all in an intimate setting. A must-do experience for the opera lover.

The Opera Gala

The Opera Gala is a whimsical and theatrical evening that raises money for BLO’s Jane & Steven Akin Emerging Artists while supporting our primary mission to build curiosity, enthusiasm and support for opera. Our most loyal friends and family gather for a fabulous night of fun—dining, dancing, and singing the night away.
