  1. Carmen

    Minnesota Opera Center
    Minneapolis, MN 55401
    Call: 612-333-6669

    The smoldering femme fatale, Carmen, is one of the most captivating heroines in all of opera. Obsession turns deadly when her gypsy seductions ensnare both a love-sick soldier and a swaggering toreador. With its passionate, sultry orchestration and a veritable hit parade of recognizable tunes, Bizet’s tour de force sizzles in a new staging.

    Preliminary run time of 2 hours and 50 minutes, with one intermission.

    Sung in French with English translations projected above the stage.

  2. Hansel and Gretel

    Minnesota Opera Center
    Minneapolis, MN 55401
    Call: 612-333-6669

    Based on the Brothers Grimm classic, this beloved fairy tale whips together frothy folk tunes with sumptuous orchestration into a deceptively sweet, deliciously dark confection that has delighted families for generations. Minnesota Opera’s new production of Engelbert Humperdinck’s enduring masterpiece arrives just in time for the holiday season.

    Preliminary run time of 2 hours and 10 minutes, with one intermission.

    Sung in German with English translations projected above the stage.

  3. La fanciulla del West

    Minnesota Opera Center
    Minneapolis, MN 55401
    Call: 612-333-6669

    From the Italian master who wrote Madame Butterfly and Turandot comes a romantic portrait of America’s iconic Golden West. Puccini’s gorgeous melodies and blazing orchestral colors are set against the backdrop of a gold-mining frontier town, where a poker-playing, pistol-wielding saloon owner finds herself in a love triangle with a handsome outlaw and the sheriff who is in hot pursuit of him.

    Preliminary run time of 2 hours and 54 minutes, with two intermissions.

    Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.

  4. The Elixir of Love

    Minnesota Opera Center
    Minneapolis, MN 55401
    Call: 612-333-6669

    In one of the most endearing Italian comic operas, a love-struck country bumpkin sets out to win a feisty socialite’s heart, aided by a “magic” potion and a doctor of dubious credentials. Donizetti’s light-hearted comedy bubbles with effervescent arias and charm as the elixir causes as many problems as it solves.

    Preliminary run time of 2 hours and 27 minutes, with one intermission.

    Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
