Double the Drama

Twice the Delight

Our 2015-16 season includes two grand operas and two chamber operas — all based on great works of literature.

Eugene Opera is growing. Grow with us — see all four! 

The season opened on Halloween weekend with a stunning production of  The Turn of the Screw by Benjamin Britten. Critics said “this is a performance that will be discussed for years to come” (Alison Kaufman, The Register-Guard); “a great, haunted and intriguing show” (Bob Keefer, Eugene Art Talk).

Next up: Celebrate New Year’s Eve with “one of the most glorious evenings that Italian Opera can offer,” the tragic love story Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti – followed by a party with the cast, if you choose. Or experience the show as an equally glorious matinee on Sunday, January 3. Read more

Be sure to see the rest of our expanded season:

In March we present Piotr Tchaikovsky’s romantic Russian drama, Eugene Onegin.

The season wraps up in May with Mark Adamo’s opera Little Womenbased on the heart-warming classic.
