Michael and Ginger Frost Production Arts Building
712 E. 18th Street, KCMO 64108

In this chamber opera for two singers and string quartet, by composer Laura Kaminsky and co-librettists Mark Campbell and filmmaker Kimberly Reed, a mezzo-soprano and a baritone depict the experiences of its sole transgender protagonist, Hannah, as she endeavors to resolve the discord between her self and the outside world. The New York Observer says “As One is everything we hope for in a contemporary opera: topical, poignant, daring, and beautifully written.”

Tickets are $25.

Rigoletto

March 3, 7, 9 (7:30 PM) and 11 (2:00 PM), 2018
Presented by Lyric Opera of Kansas City
Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

A Tale so Tragic, Your Tissues will need Tissues.

When his comedic cruelty crosses the line, a hunchbacked jester named Rigoletto is cursed by a courtier, threatening his futile attempts to protect his daughter from the depravity of a powerful Duke deadset on defiling her. Verdi’s gritty revenge opera contrasts its haunting, careening storyline with radiant melodies, unforgettable arias, and some of the most recognizable music in all of opera.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Presented by Lyric Opera of Kansas City
Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

You know it. You just don't know it yet.

Check your powdered wigs at the door and join us in Seville, Spain for a Barber of a different color. While true to every character, every wink and every note, this vibrant performance of The Barber of Seville draws inspiration from the magical realism of filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar to stretch the opera’s Spanish setting into an experience that is as '60s psychedelic as it is laugh-out-loud hilarious.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
