Opera in the Ozarks begins June 24

The 2011 season of Opera in the Ozarks begins June 24. If you love opera, you need do attend!

This year’s opera lineup includes 23 total performances and runs through July 22. Three popular operas are featured: Die Fledermaus (The Bat) by Johann Strauss II; Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; and Little Women by Mark Adamo, which is sung in English.

The summer program brings spectacular music, performance and stagecraft to Eureka Springs, while helping talented young artists from across the nation hone their operatic skills.
Singers perform in period costume and are accompanied by a full orchestra. It is rare for an opera house to offer three great operas in four week season, and the young singers work at an extremely intense pace to make the magic happen.

Victoria House Cottage reopens

After 4 months of renovation, the Victoria House Cottage improvements are complete. There are two new bathrooms each with walk-in showers and an updated kitchen with Keurig coffee maker. We hope the addition of another bathroom will make life easier when the ‘girls’ come to stay and it is now perfect for two couples too.
