Thank you to Everyone!! who attended and helped raise money for the One America Appeal for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. You also dropped off bags of gifts which were distributed locally and to children in Puerto Rico through the wonderful folks at the Puerto Rican Festival of Massachusetts, Inc.
Boston Rock Opera brought together more than 30 performers from Boston's vibrant music scene to celebrate the holidays with music and laughter, while raising money for Hurricane Maria relief.
Thank you all once again! Our love for you could break our hearts in two

Boston Rock Opera presents theatrical stagings of rock operas, album and artist tributes, and works by Boston-based musicians. In 2016, B.R.O. presented Stardust to Blackstar: The Lives of David Bowie, and HAIR after a long period of inactivity.
Previously best known for its cult productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, and its theatrical premiere of The Kinks' Ray Davies' Preservation, Boston Rock Opera has celebrated a diverse range of narrative music, and worked with hundreds of New England based performers and musicians since 1993. Whether through a full blown theatrical production, or a nightclub event, B.R.O.'s mission is to explore the challenge of great storytelling through the power and risk of rock and roll.
Believing that the arts are enhanced by true diversity, BRO strives to recruit performers of all races, ethnicities, ages and identities.
