Shining Brow Saturday, October 5, 2019 7:30PM - Sunday, October 6, 2019 2:00PM   ·   More Info »
Shining Brow

From 1903 to 1914, the early life of visionary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright was anything but conventional. In fact, it was tumultuous. Shining Brow, the translation of the Welsh “Taliesin,” was the name that Wright gave to his homes in Wisconsin and Arizona, and where his life took a unique turn. An affair with a client’s wife, complicated relationships, murders and a devastating fire at Taliesin drove Wright’s passion and determination to rebuild his life in this compelling and surprising tale.

Fellow Travelers Saturday, November 16, 2019 7:30PM - Sunday, November 17, 2019 2:00PM   ·   More Info »
Fellow Travelers

During the McCarthy-era Lavender Scare, communists weren’t the only government targets. Hostility directed toward abolishing “homosexual tendencies” in the government created a world of fear and shame. In Fellow Travelers, a chance encounter between an ambitious college graduate, Timothy Laughlin, and a handsome US State Department official, Hawkins Fuller, results in Laughlin’s first job— and his first love affair. Drawn into a maelstrom of passion and deceit, he struggles to reconcile his political convictions and his “forbidden” love for Fuller. The powerfully compelling production is an ode to the importance of being one’s self and the bravery it takes to stand up to oppression. This moving tale is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Thomas Mallon.

La Bohème Saturday, February 1, 2020 7:30PM - Sunday, February 2, 2020 2:00PM   ·   More Info »
La Bohème

To be an aspiring artist in 1830s Paris was to be poor—but happy. When Mimì enters the poet Rodolfo’s apartment in search of a flame to light her candle, the pair ignite a romance that burns brilliantly through the ages. The passion and struggle of Rodolfo and his fellow bohemians come to life in Puccini’s timeless masterpiece, one of opera’s most popular and engaging stories. La Bohème will thrill you with its sweeping melodies and its dramatic love story.

Riders of the Purple Sage Saturday, March 7, 2020 7:30PM - Sunday, March 8, 2020 2:00PM   ·   More Info »
Riders of the Purple Sage

Arizona Opera’s first commission, which made its world-premiere to sold-out crowds in 2017, is making its hugely-anticipated return. Riders of the Purple Sage, an adaptation of Zane Grey’s classic of the same name, tells a powerful story of strength and redemption through love, loss, conflict and adventure across breathtaking Southwest vistas that are brought magnificently to life by world-renowned Arizona artist, Ed Mell.

Ariadne auf Naxos Saturday, April 11, 2020 7:30PM - Sunday, April 12, 2020 2:00PM   ·   More Info »
Ariadne auf Naxos

Comedy becomes divine

A wealthy patron has commissioned two pieces of entertainment for a private dinner party: an opera based on the myth of Ariadne in exile, and a capering troupe of clowns for comic relief. The catch: the two acts must perform simultaneously! The result is a delightful comedy of errors, as Ariadne auf Naxos delivers a deliciously theatrical mix of humor and exceptionally beautiful music, bringing surprise and delight at every possible turn.
