Join Union Avenue Opera for our 20th Anniversary Celebration Concert on Thursday, November 13th at 7:30pm when internationally-acclaimed soprano and UAO alumna Lise Lindstrom joins our orchestra and chorus on stage for an evening of pure operatic pleasure featuring “In questa reggia” from Turandot, “Vissi d’arte” from Tosca, and “Vieni t’affretta!” from Macbeth. The program also includes the overture from Don Giovanni–featured in UAO’s Twenty-first Festival Season–and choruses form Nabucco (“Va, pensiero”) and Carmen (March of the Toredors and Chorus: “Les voici! les voici!”).

Celebrations begin prior to the concert with a VIP Party at the newly renovated Blossom House [5331 Enright Avenue] starting at 5:30pm. Guests purchasing Anniversary Package tickets will be invited to join the UAO Board of Directors for drinks and hors d’oeuvres prior to the concert.

As an artist, nothing quite compares to the thrill of performing for a Sold Out house.

On November 13th we will celebrate the culmination of twenty years of hard work and we want to see you in the audience to share in this special occasion.

Therefore we are launching our Pack the House campaign and are counting on you to help us reach our goal and to honor our artists with the thrill of a sold out house.

How can you help? Simply purchase tickets for the Anniversary Concert on November 13th, encourage your friends and coworkers to do the same, and watch the meter fill!
