Join us for the culmination of our season of POPera with

POPera – The Return of Grand Opera!

We return to our mainstage theater at the Palladium for a 90-minute performance featuring a 13-piece orchestra, some staging and costuming. This is the closest we’ve come to putting on a full-scale opera since quarantine began, and it’s the next step in our hero’s journey back to the big stage. Ten stellar singers, including the POPera hit sensation “The Three Tenors,” will sing selections from Mozart, Puccini, Verdi, Bizet, Barber and others.

Presenting Samuel Barber’s
A Hand of Bridge in its entirety

With works by Puccini, Bizet, Mozart, Lehár

from The Pearl Fishers, La Bohème,
Carmen, Don Giovanni and more!

Encore performances by
The Three Tenors
… back by popular demand!
