Pre-Opera Talks

One hour prior to each performance of our fully staged productions, a half-hour “Pre-Opera Talk” takes place in the Grand Lobby of the Valentine Theatre. All ticket holders are invited to attend this free event. Learn interesting background information about:

  • The source of the opera’s story (a novel, a myth or folk tale, an event in history, ancient or modern); or,
  • The composer and how the opera fits within the context of his or her overall work; or,
  • Different productions of the opera over time.
