Join us this summer for Opera Under the Big Top as we make our return to presenting live, in-person opera with performances of Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann and Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia at the Big Top in St. Louis’ Grand Center district. The operas will unfold, acted in front of UAO’s wonderful orchestra on the Big Top stage with costumes and lights to the delight of socially distanced, masked audiences in the large open-air tent.
Due to distanced seating, there are limited tickets available.
As such The Big Top has maximized their seating chart and tickets are available in blocks of 2, 3,4, or 5 – these blocks cannot be split. To sit together, tickets must be ordered together.
Exclusively for the 2021 Festival Season, all orders must be placed through MetroTix.com or by calling 314-534-1111
Beginning June 1st, our offices will once again be staffed Monday – Thursday from 10am to 3pm, however they will remain closed to walk-in visitors. Visitors to Union Avenue Opera must make an appointment first by contacting Administrative Director Emily Stolarski at emily[at]unionavenueopera.org or 314-361-2881.
