Carmen : What a wonderful way to end our anniversary 10th season!

Well the Carmen reviews are rolling in and we couldn’t be happier! Not only did we top 1,000 in guests at our 2 day showing, but the amount of positive feedback we are receiving has put us on cloud 9! Below are links to some of the reviews posted so far.

The quality and consistency of Winter Opera’s productions continue to bet better with each passing year and they deserve your support.” – Chuck Lavazzi, KDHX

“What the packed house got to see Friday and Sunday at Chaminade’s Skip Viragh Center was impressive… As evidenced by this excellent “Carmen,” the company indeed has something to celebrate.” – John Huxhold, Post-Dispatch

“This production completes the company’s tenth season, and it’s a crowning glory.” – Steve Callahan, Broadwayworld

Did you know:

Medieval Easter and Christmas plays, which were performed to music, are considered precursors to opera. The most famous of these pre-operatic church dramas is the Quem Queritis (“Whom do you seek?”) play about a group of women who go to Christ’s tomb to anoint his body. As these plays evolved, they became more theatrical and less religious.

Gioachino Rossini (La Cenerentola & Il barbiere di Siviglia) once said,

“Eating, loving, singing and digesting are, in truth, the four acts of the comic opera known as life, and they pass like bubbles of a bottle of champagne. Whoever lets them break without having enjoyed them is a complete fool.”

What better way to celebrate this than enjoying a delicious four-course dinner and comedic opera (with some bubbly of course)?!

Summer Opera Nights kick off May 24th at 7pm with Comedy Opera Tonight.

Tickets now available.

It's that time of year again for spring cleaning. What are you going to do with that money you found in your winter coat pocket? Give to your favorite nonprofit opera company of course!

Now is one of the best times, too. We are in the middle of a donation match so it's like donating double!

Our summer months are particularly hard as there's no income from ticket sales.Thank you in advance for all the continued support! We truly couldn't do it without you!
