Orpheus and Eurydice (April 8 & 9)
A legendary musician loses his love. Overcome with intolerable grief, he ventures to the depths of hell on a rescue mission to save her. Based on the classical Greek mythology of Orpheus, this baroque opera composed by Christoph Willibald Gluck was so influential in its style that it set the stage for several subsequent operas. In this age-old story set to modern staging and dance, will the hero save the heroine?
Romeo and Juliet (April 29 & 30)
You know the romantic tale of the star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. When love meets fate, parting is such sweet sorrow. In this beautiful musical adaptation, Charles Gounod presents notable, swoon-worthy duets between the young lovers—just in time to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 1616. Presented in French with English titles.Romeo and Juliet is a collaborative production between Opera Carolina, Virginia Opera, Toledo Opera, Lyric Opera Baltimore and Opera Grand Rapids.

Presented to audiences in Beer City, USA, is a coming-of-age love story set in a Heidelberg biergarten. With rousing choruses such as “Drink! Drink! Drink!,” this lighthearted operetta has remained a hit among theatergoers since its opening during the Prohibition era. Presented in English.
