Tickets are still available for the Morgantown engagement of the electrifying international sensation The Opera Show, scheduled for Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the WVU Creative Arts Center for one night only. Don’t miss this spectacular production!

The Opera Show is a stunning spectacle of the world’s most seductive arias performed in colorful, breathtaking style for the 21st century. This ravishing, original production just completed a sold-out engagement in the United Kingdom and received rave reviews. “Consummately beautiful!” writes The Stage. The Daily Express deemed it “Totally captivating” and “Fiercely brilliant.”

The Opera Show takes audiences on a journey through the ages and features opera’s most evocative masterpieces, including Nessun Dorma, La Donna E Mobile, Habanera, O Sole Mio as well as other classics by Puccini, Verdi, Rossini and Mozart, among others. Featuring dazzling choreography, spectacular costumes and sung by consummate vocalists, The Opera Show is an electrifying evening that will delight opera enthusiasts and newcomers alike.

The Opera Show is presented in three acts, carrying the audience through vivid visual allegories beginning with the fanciful Baroque period, to 1940’s post civil war Spain and then through to the electronic age of now and the future.
