Events

  1. Dead Man Walking

    345 Washington St
    St Paul, MN 55102
    Call: (612) 333-6669

    The most performed new opera of the 21st century, this heartbreaking story of grief, grace, and redemption is a modern classic. Based on Sister Helen Prejean’s memoir that inspired the Oscar-winning movie of the same name, it recounts her courageous struggle to provide spiritual guidance to a condemned Louisiana murderer in the months leading up to his execution. With a powerful libretto by four-time Tony Award® winner Terrence McNally and lyrical music by Jake Heggie—praised as one of the great living opera composers—Dead Man Walking has moved audiences worldwide since its premiere.

    Preliminary runtime of 2 hours and 43 minutes, including one intermission.

    Sung in English with English captions projected above the stage.

    Dead Man Walking contains nudity, violence, and strong language.

  2. Don Pasquale

    345 Washington St
    St Paul, MN 55102
    Call: (612) 333-6669

    This production of Donizetti’s bubbly farce presents the miserly aristocrat Don Pasquale as a silent movie star facing the end of his career in 1950s Hollywood. Locked in a battle of wits and wills with his lovesick nephew Ernesto and the crafty widow Norina, Pasquale must grapple with the new problems and possibilities of the modern technicolor world. It takes the clever scheming of the family doctor to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson—but not before a series of amusing catastrophes threaten to shatter his ego for good.

    Preliminary runtime of 2 hours and 26 minutes, including one intermission.

    Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.

  3. Rigoletto

    345 Washington St
    St Paul, MN 55102
    Call: (612) 333-6669

    This time-honored tale of seduction and bitter revenge is boldly imagined in this new production. The disfigured jester Rigoletto must do everything in his power to protect his innocent daughter from the lecherous Duke of Mantua before she falls into his clutches. Brimming with rich melodies and featuring the famous aria “La donna è mobile,” Rigoletto tragically unfurls as it races toward its devastating conclusion.

    Preliminary runtime of 2 hours and 53 minutes, including one intermission.

    Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.

  4. Thais

    345 Washington St
    St Paul, MN 55102
    Call: (612) 333-6669

    A devout monk seeks to convert Thaïs, a ravishingly beautiful courtesan, but realizes too late that his pious obsession is rooted in lust, not religion. Minnesota Opera produces Massenet’s sensual and melodic creation for the first time with Minnesota-born soprano Kelly Kaduce (Rusalka, Tosca, The Shining) in the glamorous title role. Set in the deserts and oases of fourth-century Egypt, this searing drama explores the conflict between the passion of the flesh and the salvation of the soul.

    Preliminary runtime of 3 hours, including two intermissions.

    Sung in French with English translations projected above the stage.

  5. The Marriage of Figaro

    345 Washington St
    St Paul, MN 55102
    Call: (612) 333-6669

    All is fair in love and war in this new staging of Mozart’s timeless comedy of errors, widely considered the perfect opera. Mozart’s infectious score brings humor, drama, and humanity to this story of class conflict. It should be the happiest day of their lives, but the wily servant Figaro and his charming fiancée Susanna must fend off the philandering, arrogant Count Almaviva before he ruins everything. On a day filled with chaos and confusion in which disguised identities are revealed and shenanigans ensue, will the young lovers finally make it to the altar?

    Preliminary runtime of 3 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.

    Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
