UPCOMING EVENTS

New Year's Eve: Gothic Circus

New Year’s Eve Party

Coming back in 2022!
Betty Van Andel Opera Center

The only thing we at Opera Grand Rapids love as much as opera, is a great party. If you’ve been to our New Year’s Eve party before, you know. It. Is. Epic. We were looking forward to bringing you an awesome gothic circus this year, but we’ve been watching the news. COVID rates in West Michigan are at an all-time high and while we are confident that our safety protocols work, we don’t want to risk anyone’s health and safety. That’s why we’ve decided to postpone our Gothic Circus NYE to next year. We look forward to the big tent rolling back into town then!
