Stardust to BlackstarFounded in 1993, Boston Rock Opera presents theatrical stagings of rock operas and evenings dedicated to album tributes, narrative song, song cycles, conceptual rock performance and works in progress. BRO presented its first concert event, Stardust to Blackstar: The Lives of David Bowie, in August 2016 after a long period of inactivity.

While perhaps best known for its cult productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, the 2000 production featured Gary Cherone as Judas, Chris Mascara in the title role and Valerie Forgione as Mary Magdalene, Boston Rock Opera also presented theatrical premieres of the the Kinks' Ray Davies' Preservation and The Pretty Things' S. F. Sorrow.

Whether through a full blown theatrical production or a nightclub event BRO's goal was and is to explore the power and risk of rock and roll with the challenge of great storytelling.
