The Magic Flute

October 26 & 27 | 7:30 PM | DeVos Performance Hall

Opera Grand Rapids’ love affair with the prodigy from Salzburg continues with his final beloved masterpiece, The Magic Flute. Performed in English, this magical allegorical tale of equality between all men and women has enchanted audiences since its premiere more than two hundred years ago. OGR’s production stars acclaimed artists John Viscardi as the comic Papageno and Jana McIntyre as the star-blazing Queen of the Night, with the Opera Grand Rapids chorus and the Grand Rapids Symphony under the baton of Artistic Director Mo. James Meena.

La Traviata

June 14 & 15 | 7:30 PM | St. Cecilia Music Center

The heartbreaking true story of Parisian courtesan Marie Duplessis became the classic novella that inspired the films Camille, Pretty Woman and Moulin Rouge. The great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi retells her story in one of the greatest operas of all time. Opera Grand Rapids’ production in the elegant setting of St. Cecilia Music Center stars Metropolitan Opera star soprano Elizabeth Caballero. Joining Elizabeth is our Duke of Mantua from last season’s acclaimed Rigoletto, Raffaele Abete and OGR’s favorite leading baritone, Metropolitan Opera star Mark Rucker.
