The Passion of Mary Cardwell Dawson
February 15, 16 & 17, 2024

 Mary Cardwell Dawson took the world by storm, training hundreds of African American youth to sing, and founding the longest-running, all-Black opera company.

Madame Butterfly
January 25, 27 & 28, 2024

Turandot

April 18, 20 & 21, 2024

Set in ancient China, the imperious Princess Turandot poses three riddles to any prince who dares to court her, and commands the death of all who fail. When an unknown prince triumphs, the prospect of marriage strikes terror in her heart.  Will love win, or will death be the prince’s reward?

Pagliacci with Cavalleria Rusticana
