The Edmonton Opera's 50th season includes three mainstage productions, encompassing multiple varieties of operatic repertoire. Subscriptions start at only $96, and include a ticket to Richard Strauss' Salome, Johann Strauss' Die Fledermaus and Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly. Based on Wilde's play, Salome is a psychological thriller and features Maida Hundeling in the title role, who returns to Edmonton after singing Leonore in Fidelio in the 2011/12 season. In February, the Waltz King's Die Fledermaus will be on stage, a bubbly operetta in three-quarter time. And finally, to close our anniversary season, we return to a version of the production that opened the Edmonton Opera in 1963: Madama Butterfly.
After 50 years of memorable operatic performances and innovative outreach programs, we still consider this just the overture. Purchase an Opera Duo and join us for the remaining two shows of the 2013/14 season; single tickets are also available. As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, parking at the Jubilee lots is free of charge during opera performances.
