For avid fans or first-timers, Minnesota Opera provides an unrivaled evening filled with sensational music, theater, and storytelling. Unbridled comedy meets passionate romance and drama for an experience theater-goers won’t soon forget.
For the first time ever, Minnesota Opera presents comic romance The Anonymous Lover. Written in 1780 by the groundbreaking Black composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, this opera about earnest vulnerability and steadfast devotion tells the story of a beautiful young widow who is doubtful about ever finding love again — sung in French with English dialogue and English captions projected above the stage. This February 5 through 13.
Operatic favorite Carmen will also be coming to the stage in spring. In this classic, a gorgeous woman leading a bold and independent life attracts the attention of a corporal military officer, and a story of passion and desire soon transforms into a fight for freedom. Denyce Graves makes her directorial debut leading a new production of Bizet’s tantalizing tale about romance, obsession, and vengeance.
This season also includes the one-day-only presentation of Voices United, a dynamic concert experience of opera hits and modern masterpieces starring the MN Opera Chorus and the MN Opera Orchestra.
