2018-2019 Opera at the Academy

This season we present three operas that you very likely know and love. (We certainly do.) But along with this invitation to enjoy the finest the canon has to offer comes a promise to stage each in a way that will make you fall in love anew. We hope you will join us.

Opera at the Academy Series includes three operas: Lucia di Lammermoor, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and La bohème. These packages are a set grouping of dates on the same day of the week.^ You'll get the best choice of seats, plus, you can renew your exact same seats from season to season.
