The Summer of 2012 will see Opera North celebrating its 30th year filled with magnificent voices, great music and lively theater.  The season is all about three charming operas and one classic American musical.

The King and I, Rogers and Hammerstein
Anna Leonowens, an English schoolteacher sent to Siam to teach the children in the royal palace, clashes with their father, the King.  Together they find themselves bound by a love that neither is able to express.

The Impresario, Mozart
This is a hilarious opera about the classic conflict between singers and the theater manager who must cast them.

The Cunning Little Vixen, Janacek
This is a touching tale of the cycle of life in a European forest with characters as varied as the forest itself.

March 3, 2011   7:30 P.M.
This exhilarating musical journey will focus on the richness of the African guitar tradition.

Kathy Mattea
March 26, 2011  7:30 P.M.
Kathy Mattea’s music explores our most basic human essence.  A blend of bluegrass and folk, she has created timeless narratives and melodies.  Mattea has sold over 7 million records, recorded 18 top ten songs, and has won 2 Grammys and 4 Country Music Awards.

The Kingston Trio
May 20, 2011  7:30 P.M.
This folk group holds a special place in my heart as they were the first concert I ever attended.  That was many, many years ago but I still have all their albums stored away and remember the lyrics to Tom Dooley, Riding The MTA and Scotch and Soda. They emerged from the San Francisco North Beach Club scene to take the country by storm and bring the rich tradition of folk music into the mainstream for the first time.  The faces have changed but the songs remain timeless.

Information concerning the Lebanon Opera House summer opera series will be forthcoming.
