Dayton Opera


Snap_TomDayton Opera’s signature characteristics of great singing, great stories, and visual spectacle certainly apply in the season lineup. We begin with the Season Opening Spectacular, featuring Arrigo Boito’s monumental Prologue to Mefistofele as well as a tribute to the stage works of Leonard Bernstein.

Giacomo Puccini's passionate Tosca follows with its tale of love, lust, deceit and murder. In February we bring Engelbert Humperdinck’s beloved fairy-tale opera Hansel and Gretel to the Mead stage. The season closes with the grandest of the grand operas, Verdi’s Aida, which will include the full forces of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance for a spectacular finale! Join us. | Please note: Friday evening subscribers will be seated in the Saturday, September 21st performance of the Season Opening Spectacular. Sunday subscribers will stay in place for the September 22nd performance.
