Our 2017 summer season includes a world premiere jazz/gospel opera, A Gathering of Sons, seen in both touring performances throughout the city and at Winchester Thurston School. Andrey Nemzer and Lara Lynn McGill join forces again in Handel's Xerxes, (after a triumphant Julius Caesar last season!), and the next in our series of lesser-known operas by Richard Strauss is the autobiographical Intermezzo. Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd offers thrills for Broadway-lovers, and Hansel and Gretel provides a superb introduction to opera for children of all ages.

The season also includes recitals, free cabaret performances, a perambulatory opera under the moon, a film screening, and more.
