Opus Opera will partner with the Delta Festival Ballet in an extraordinary treatment of this 1736 baroque treasure, accompanied by a baroque ensemble and sung by Irini Kyriakidou and Christina Vial.

Our signature "Circus and Arias" concert is to return after much public demand here in New Orleans and even beyond. Our Fly Circus Company/Space partner, led by Liza Rose, will come back with some new numbers and the classics that made this show the cherry in last season's operatic offerings across the parish.  A truly unique experience in the theater for the whole family! Bryan Hymel, Irini Kyriakidou, Christina Vial, Weston Hurt, and the amazing Rainelle Krause will all return to sing your favorite arias and operatic ensembles together with your favorite feats of the acrobatic arts. Come and be on the edge of your seat with "Vocal Chills!" and "Acrobatic Thrills!"
