Baltimore 2001 vs. Baltimore 2013 [Pictures]
A lot has changed in Baltimore since 2001, when the Ravens last played in the Super Bowl (sweet reminder: they beat the New York Giants, 34-7). Just how different is Baltimore, you ask? We'll leave you to decide if things were better then, or now.

Sadly, the Baltimore Opera Company filed for bankruptcy in 2008, and in early 2009, decided to liquidate. Since 2011, its successor, Lyric Opera Baltimore, has tried to pick up the slack, scheduling three operas in its debut season and two its second (including Puccini's "La Boheme," with Anna Samuil, above).
