The Elixir Mixir, for fun-loving guests age 21+, will combine story elements from The Elixir of Love with the Thomas Hart Benton-inspired set design and our own local “elixirs”, creating a unique upscale pub-crawl experience.

The event begins at 3:30 p.m. at the administrative offices of Lyric Opera of Kansas City, where guests (and some special guests from The Elixir of Love cast) begin by getting a taste of the opera and its regional artist/Americana update.  Then, via shuttle bus, we’ll visit the Thomas Hart Benton Home and Studio for a guided tour followed by a wine tasting at Amigoni Urban Winery and a special “elixir” cocktail and appetizer at Affäre.  The shuttle will then bring guests back to the Lyric Opera of Kansas City.

This event is underwritten by R.C. Kemper, Jr. Charitable Trust, UMB Bank, n.a., Trustee

The Elixir of Love

March 12 - 20, 2016
Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Orchestra tickets start at only $59.

Passion, Pride and Potions.

Donizetti’s bel canto comedy is a lively, charming tale of a boy, a girl and a love potion. The setting has been reimagined as early 20th-century America in a style reminiscent of Kansas City painter Thomas Hart Benton. Upright and slightly naïve Nemorino is infatuated with beautiful and slightly fickle Adina, who in turn is in the sights of the calculating and slightly devious Sergeant Belcore. Enter snake-oil salesman Dr. Dulcamara, a cheap bottle of wine (or two) and you have a fun and whimsical romp. A beguiling tonic of passion and humor, The Elixir of Love features exhilarating duets as well as the wildly romantic aria, “Una furtiva lagrima,” which will leave you enchanted.

Sung in Italian with English titles.
Appropriate for children 7+

Carmen

April 23 - May 1, 2016
Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Orchestra tickets start at only $59.

Maidens, Matadors and Madness.

Carmen, the passionate and devastating masterpiece by Georges Bizet, may be the opera even those unfamiliar with opera will recognize. Bizet’s score is seductive, alluring and perfectly matched to Carmen’s conquest of bullfighters, soldiers and smugglers.The fiery gypsy sings the signature “Habanera” as she sets her sights on local corporal Don José. He quickly falls under her spell, only to be cast aside and humiliated. The music follows his descent from soldier and lover to desperate murderer as he sends Carmen to her doom against the roar and cry of the bullring.

Sung in French with English titles.
Appropriate for children 13+
