Carmen Saturday, February 17, 2018 7:30PM - Saturday, March 24, 2018 1:30PM   ·   More Info »

All-consuming, ill-fated passion rules the tumultuous love of a gypsy and a corporal. Carmen will take you on a journey through Seville, to the mountains with the smugglers, and finally to the bullring, where Carmen and Don José’s story comes to its tragic end.

Hear some of the most recognizable music in opera, like the “Habanera” and the “Seguidilla,” and feel the excitement of the famous “Toreador Song.”

Manon Lescaut Saturday, February 10, 2018 7:00PM - Friday, March 23, 2018 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
Manon Lescaut

Love at first sight strikes the Cavalier Des Grieux and the enchanting Manon Lescaut. They flee to Paris, but when Des Grieux’s money runs out, Manon leaves him for a wealthy man. Yet despite the jewels and parties, Manon’s love for Des Grieux is inextinguishable and will burn them in ways they do not foresee.

Norma Saturday, March 3, 2018 7:30PM - Saturday, March 24, 2018 7:30PM   ·   More Info »

In Roman-occupied Gaul, a Druid priestess and a Roman official—Norma and Pollione—have fallen in love. Defying her sacred vows, Norma has borne two children, but Pollione’s sights are now set on Adalgisa, a temple virgin. The scorned Norma contemplates murder, but as her heart battles between love and duty, she chooses to be cleansed by the flames of a sacrificial pyre.

Tiefland Saturday, March 10, 2018 7:30PM - Sunday, March 25, 2018 1:30PM   ·   More Info »

Marta is the unwilling mistress of a wealthy landowner, Sebastiano. To keep the poor girl near him while he takes a wealthy wife, Sebastiano marries Marta off to the shepherd, Pedro. Unaware of her past, Pedro falls in love with her. When Marta’s awful secret comes to light, Pedro does whatever it takes to free his beloved from her misery.

This passionate example of early 20th century verismo opera is seen regularly in Germany and Austria, but there has been only one other U.S. production in a century.
