    Overview of Performances

    Un ballo in maschera

    Loosely based on a play by Eugène Scribe (Gustave III), Verdi’s opera, Un ball in maschera(The Masked Ball), tells the story of a king and his forbidden love of his best friend’s wife. Like many of Verdi’s opera, this one isn’t without tragedy.

    Carmen

    Carmen is an opera in four acts by the French composer Georges Bizet. The libretto was written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy, based on a novella of the same title by Prosper Mérimée. Spanish heat and gypsy passion are brought to the stage.

    Aida

    Aida is a classic love triangle: Aida, a Nubian princess, is captured by an Egyptian captain, Radames. Aida is the story of three people who are forced to make difficult choices.

    Turandot

    This sad yet romantic opera, set in Ancient China, has captivated the hearts of audiences since its first performance in 1926.

    Madame Butterfly

    Be prepared to be swept away. One of the world’s best loved masterpieces, Madame Butterfly is a gloriously passionate tale of misplaced love and betrayal.

    Romeo and Juliet

    Shakespeare's story is a tragedy about two star-crossed lovers whose deaths unite their feuding families.
