I think I've been to the opera twice in my life. One of those times was to see Bizet's Carmen. The other I can't remember. If you're looking for a somewhat more cultural event to attend on humpday this week, I recommend you swing by the Hatch Shell to see a free performance by the Boston Lyric Opera.

Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) invites all arts lovers to spend a summer evening listening to opera for free at the DCR Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade. Those eager for an inexpensive evening and itching for live music can come to the Hatch Shell alone or with friends and family in tow on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 7 p.m. The concert will run until 9 p.m.

Together with partner the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, BLO will preview excerpts from its 2009-2010 Season combined with selected works from other timeless operas. BLO artists—Meredith Hansen, soprano; Heather Johnson, mezzo-soprano; Darren Anderson, tenor; and Christopher Burchett, baritone—take the stage with the Orchestra to perform pieces from Bizet’s Carmen (BLO’s Season opener), Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette, Mozart’s Idomeneo (also from the Season), and Verdi’s La Traviata, among other favorites.

I'm sure you're blankets and chairs are still sitting out from the night you went to see Shakespeare on the Common, so just grab them and head on over on Wednesday.
