BLO’s Community of Supporters

The Orfeo Society—named for the father of song—and Friends of BLO make up BLO’s community of core supporters. Founded on a mutual love for opera, members share their passion for masterful works of art and support the exceptional resources required to create them season upon season. In return, members receive exclusive access to benefits that enrich their operatic experience. When you join The Orfeo Society or Friends of BLO, you become part of a vibrant community of patrons whose generosity is only surpassed by the beauty of the operatic art form.

Make a gift today, and send a powerful message of artistic leadership, civic impact, and passion that only BLO—and you—can bring.
