Opera Up Close: TIME CHANGE!

Opera Up Close: The Carmen Preview will now take place from 12 – 2 p.m. this Sunday, Nov. 1 at MMoCA. The event was originally scheduled for 4 – 6 p.m. but has been changed due to a statewide conflict with the Packers v. Vikings game.

Be sure to join us as
General Director Allan Naplan leads an exciting and engaging multi-media exploration of Bizet’s Carmen. He’ll be joined by Maestro John DeMain, director Candace Evans, soprano Katharine Goeldner and tenor Adam Diegel for commentary on the Madison Opera production.

General Admission $20 / Students FREE with valid ID

Scenes from Carmen rehearsals

I’ve been taking some photos at this week’s rehearsals for Carmen over at Promenade Hall. These should give you a sense of just how many people are involved in this production (actual total: 238). More to come after Thursday night!

Flamenco Fans at Kids in the Rotunda


On Saturday, Madison Opera partnered with Kids in the Rotunda and the Monroe Street Fine Arts Center on a community art project that had kids making Flamenco Fans to go on display in the Overture Hall lobby during Carmen. We all had a great time, enjoy the pictures!
