Dad hasn't been himself lately, or literally.

Deep in the shadows of the Colorado Rockies, nestled between the middle of nowhere and miles from where anyone can hear you scream, waits the Overlook Hotel. For its new caretakers, the Torrance family, the only thing more unnerving than their profound seclusion is the realization that they are not the hotel's only guests.

The young son with a sixth sense endures the house of horrors as his father faces demons - past and present, real and remembered - that ultimately turn him into a monster. What started as a desperate search for financial (and marital) sanctuary, spirals into a terrifying struggle for sanity and survival.

With music as haunting as the story is tragic, only through opera does The Shining discover more frightening and fulfilling depths than ever before.

Sung in English with English subtitles.


All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter the theater.
