  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. Fellow Travelers

    528 Hennepin Ave
    Minneapolis, MN 55403
    Call: (612) 333-6669

    The story of a forbidden love affair between two men in 1950s McCarthy-era Washington, D.C., Fellow Travelers is a searing opera infused with political drama, unexpected humor, and sincere heartbreak. A chance encounter between recent college graduate Timothy Laughlin and handsome State Department official Hawkins Fuller results in Tim’s first job—and his first love affair with a man. As McCarthy mounts a desperate bid for power and internal investigations focus on removing “sexual subversives” in the government, Tim and Fuller find it increasingly dangerous to navigate their double lives.

  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.
