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.
