Join Ash Lawn Opera for a world-class theater experience! For over 38 years, Charlottesville's opera company has produced opera and other musical performances first at Ash Lawn-Highland, and now at the beautifully renovated Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. Ash Lawn Opera also provides a wide range of educational programs for youth and adults; professional training for emerging artists and interns; and seeks to enrich the cultural vitality and quality of life in Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region.
Our 2016 season is full of perennial favorites: from a semi-staged concert performance of Verdi's La traviata, in collaboration with the Oratorio Society of Virginia, to our summer season of Mozart's comedic classic Così fan tutte and Rodgers and Hammerstein's ever-topical, Pulitzer Prize winning musical South Pacific. These productions will feature singers drawn from the most prestigious opera houses in the country, a professional orchestra, and eye-catching costumes and sets. All performances are held at the historic Paramount Theater on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall -- the perfect place for a night out on the town.
Tickets are $12-75 and subscriptions will be available in February 2016.
