Deception, passion, love, laughter, faithfulness, honor, despair, revenge, murder, and forgiveness describe many movies today but they also describe events in Ariodante, Handel’s most performed and widely loved opera. Be completely enchanted by some of his most beautiful, yet vocally demanding music.
Don’t miss the pre-lecture where you can learn about the music in Ariodante from Maestro Douglas Sumi, and meet and hear about the production from several on our creative staff including Kate Fry, costume designer, and Mike Mahaffey, sword fight director.
All opera performances are open seating, however those attending the pre-lecture are given seating priority. Doors open at 7:05 p.m.
No ticket is required.
