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).

Lucia di Lammermoor lived up to its reputation as “one of the most glorious evenings that Italian Opera can offer.” Audiences and critics were awed by the show: “Eugene Opera hits piercing heights with Lucia” said Heather Holmquest (The Register-Guard). “A Lucia to remember” said Bob Keefer (Eugene Art Talk).
