It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of our Summer 2020 Season. Please see below for a message from Tad and Dianne Taube General Director Matthew Shilvock and for information regarding options for ticketholders.



Important Information for TicketHolders


If you have purchased tickets...

to Ernani, Partenope, and/or The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs scheduled for summer 2020, we are offering a number of flexible options:

1. Donate the value of your tickets to the Opera’s Annual Fund for a tax-deductible contribution. 

2. Keep the value of your tickets on account and apply them to future ticket purchases, including subscriptions, for any mainstage performances in the 2020–21 Season. You can also use the funds to upgrade a current subscription order for the 2020–21 Season or hold your funds until 2021 to purchase a subscription to the 2021–22 Season. 

3. Request the Box Office call you to discuss other options, including a refund or an exchange into the 2020–21 Season.
