From ballet, to opera, to theatre, to art, this column will be her escape. Her random adventures as she takes on the city are chronicled here. When she's not out exploring the city, she runs a social media firm for major Fortune 500 companies and Museums.

O, There Is Always A Good Opera When You Need It!

Washington National Opera (WNO) has unveiled a first-of-its-kind subscription series that will allow young professionals to experience all the benefits of season-ticket holders at deeply discounted prices. Called Series O, the Friday-night series is an extension of the Company’s Generation O program, the audience development initiative which for eight seasons has offered specially priced individual tickets to opera lovers ages 18 to 35. The new series was announced on June 2 at a 2010-11 Season Preview Open Orchestra Rehearsal exclusively offered to current Generation O members, giving them the first opportunity to subscribe to Series O.

At 15,000 members strong, the free-to-join Generation O program is among the largest and most successful programs of its kind, and in addition to discounted tickets, the program offers free networking events and monthly happy hours for its membership. WNO will continue to offer individual tickets and networking events to all members of the Generation O program, though some opportunities will be exclusive to Series O subscribers.
