Mozart’s risque rom-com, The Abduction from the Seraglio, opens our season in glamorous style. This new production transports the action to 1930s Hollywood and will feature the Kansas City operatic debut of Prairie Village native Ben Bliss.

From Tinseltown, we travel to Paris for a beguiling traditional production of La bohème. There’s a reason that Puccini’s tender, beautiful tragedy remains the opera that makes people fall in love with opera.

Spring will begin with what is arguably one of the most famous of all bel canto operas, Lucia di Lammermoor. In the vocally spectacular mad scene, you will quickly find out why Donizetti’s tragic heroine is one soprano not to be underestimated.

And our 2019-2020 season will close with the second-ever production of Paul Moravec and Mark Campbell’s The Shining, based on the novel by Stephen King. The haunting story of the Torrance family’s terrifying stay at The Overlook Hotel told through music reaches more chilling depths than ever before! Are you brave enough to stay in Room 217?
