Opera 360: Elixir of Love
Hosted by Karen Flayhart
Sunday, February 10
5:30 – 7 p.m.
The Orpheum Theater
Enter at the backstage
door on 15th Street
Join Opera Omaha’s upcoming backstage tour of The Elixir of Love. You will get an exclusive look at what it takes to bring this charming, comic opera production (which is set in the 1980s) to the Orpheum Theater!
During Opera 360, you will go on a guided tour of the historic Orpheum Theater’s dressing rooms, costume/wig room(s) and onto the stage. You will get a sneak peek of the set and a view of the theater that is typically only seen by the artists, creative team, and crew. The Elixir of Love’s director, conductor, and designers will share with you their processes – deepening your understanding of all the moving cogs that make opera magic.
We will end the tour with wine and nosh in the Orpheum Theater’s legendary canteen – a volunteer-run concession service typically limited to just the performers, crew, and volunteers who work on productions. After the tour, you are welcome to stay after for Wandelprobe – the cast’s first rehearsal with orchestra (but without costumes). The rehearsal will start at 7 p.m.
Note: this is a walking and standing tour and we will be going up and down a flight of steep stairs as we move about backstage.
Space for this event is limited to 30 guests! RSVP to Temple Israel, 402-556-6536, by Thursday, February 7.
If you RSVP and find you are no longer able to attend, please contact Temple Israel so we can release your spot for another guest.
Again, please note that entry is via the backstage.
