Thrilling. Funny. Heart-racing. Smile-inducing.
Welcome to Madison Opera’s 2020/21 season.

Il Trovatore could fairly be described as having stupendous music and a ridiculous plot, full of passion and vengeance, adding up to a fast-paced, riveting night in the theater.

She Loves Me comes from the golden age of Broadway musicals, when young couples exchanged witty barbs, mistaken identities could be easily resolved, and happiness was just around the corner.

The Marriage of Figaro is quite simply sublime, a human comedy where the stakes are real, the people are flawed, and laughter and love go hand-in-hand.

At a time when our world feels fragile, these performances are three chances to connect with your community, through music and stories that have resonated across centuries and continents, reminding us of our shared humanity.

Please join us to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Madison Opera and the power of opera to reach us at any time and place.
