The Guild Boutique is more exciting than ever this season with the addition of some wonderful new items and the return of our popular one-size popcorn tops, shawls, evening bags and fun fashion jewelry. Visit us in the Schuster Center lobby along Second Street beginning with opening night, one hour before opera performances and during intermissions.

We offer an assortment of opera glasses with the more poplar styles from last year, plus a few new ones. We also carry CDs and DVDs of the season’s operas that have been recommended by Dayton Opera’s Tom Bankston, as well as other opera CDs endorsed by the late Charles Wendelken-Wilson.
