Want to learn more about the Opera you are about to see?
Come early and attend a free pre-performance lecture before the opera to learn about the composer, the history of the opera’s time period and other details applicable to the opera.
Lead by music historian and professor Betsy Schwarm, the Pre-Performance Lecture takes place in the opera house one hour before performances at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
