Maria StuardaA tragic Tudor romance

With the same bel canto mastery that enthralled Lucia di Lammermoor audiences, Donizetti builds tensions to dramatic heights in the Alberta premiere of the story of Mary, Queen of Scots, and her cousin Elizabeth. 

CarmenDangerously seductive

The impassioned love story of a sultry gypsy, a conflicted soldier and a dashing matador is brought to life by an award-winning team of Canadian designers — Maria Lamont, Camellia Koo and Deanna Finnman. 

The Merry Widowa high-kicking musical comedy

Fusing comedy, romance and sentiment with a light touch, Franz Lehár's distinctive melodies in The Merry Widow reflect quintessential Vienna, while carrying audiences away to a 1890s Paris and raucous can-cans at Chez Maxim's. 

Eggs & arias during Opera Brunches

Enjoy brunch at the exclusive Royal Glenora Club, accompanied by the favourite repertoire of artists cast in the season's productions. Subscriptions for all three brunches ($240) are now on sale. 

Opera is better with a friend

Invite someone for a night out — with plenty of ticketing options for people under 40 (Explorers memberships and encore!), families and groups, it's easy to share the opera experience. 

Make a night of it

Try something new for a date night and come to the opera! Whether you choose to dress up or down, there's always an opportunity to socialize with friends and acquaintances in the Jube lobby. And did we mention the parkade parking is complimentary on performance nights?

Gain new perspective

Before every performance, knowledgeable speakers present context of the opera in the form of complimentary Opera Talks. And while it's easy to get wrapped up in the drama unfolding on stage, there's always projected English translation above as well. 

Exposure to the Edmonton arts community

The talented Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is in the pit for every EO performance, and this season, they'll play alongside the likes of Sally Dibblee, Géraldine Chauvet, Kathryn Lewek and Keri Alkema. Plus, the EO chorus is comprised of local singers.
