Yes, we say it every year, but hey, it’s true: opera tickets make a great holiday gift! This year especially, we can promise that tickets to the remaining productions of our irresistible 50th Anniversary Season will be a hit with aficionados and newbies alike:
The Threepenny Opera, FEB 4 – 13, 2011 | The Playhouse: Kurt Weill’s jazz and operetta infused score, Brecht’s gritty drama, and the star power of James DeVita and Tracy Michelle Arnold: what’s not to love? Have we mentioned Dorothy Danner is directing, and John DeMain is conducting? Mack the Knife is coming to town, and you don’t want to miss him.
La Traviata, APR 29 & MAY 1, 2011 | Overture Hall: Verdi’s classic tells the story of the free-spirited Parisian party-girl Violetta, who falls hard for the romantic Alfredo, and it’s all brought to life with some of the most memorable operatic music ever written. Madison Opera’s production features gorgeous sets from the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the return of soprano Elizabeth Caballero, and the US debut of Italian tenor Giuseppe Varano.
