|A MESSAGE FROM OPERA OMAHA|
|Opera Omaha is honored to serve this community, which includes our audience, artists, staff and collaborators. We strive to be a leader in our community and in our field, even when it means making difficult decisions.|
|As we have been monitoring the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic, relying on information from local authorities as well as our partners and colleagues, we have decided that the most responsible way to honor our commitment to our community is to postpone our upcoming events and ONE Festival offerings including the productions of St John the Baptist in the MidCo Glass Building and The Capulets and the Montagues in the Orpheum Theater.|
|We are exploring options to bring our ONE Festival projects to fruition at a later date, and Opera Omaha will fulfill its contractual commitments to its artists and crew.|
A dramatic and emotionally vivid telling of the final days of John the Baptist, this new production follows the saga of a spiritual leader reduced to a pawn in a lustful and deadly bargain between King Herod and his own stepdaughter Salome.MORE
A dramatic and emotionally vivid telling of the final days of John the Baptist, this new production follows the saga of a spiritual leader reduced to a pawn in a lustful and deadly bargain between King Herod and his own stepdaughter Salome.
Through the prism of these ancient characters, the provocative and acclaimed director Christopher Alden asks a modern audience to explore the eternal tension in power dynamics between men and women in a unique found space with bold direction and contemporary design.
Conductor and GRAMMY Award-winning early music specialist Stephen Stubbs (2014- Agrippina, 2016- Semele) returns to Opera Omaha to lead a stellar cast featuring the company debuts of countertenor Randall Scotting and soprano Liv Redpath, as well as the return of bass Andrew Harris (2018- Proving Up).
