The first season of our new fall series, Arizona Opera RED—symbolizing the passion and heart of opera—will feature two dynamic works that explore a range of musical and thematic languages. Discover the surreal world of Maria de Buenos Aires as sultry scenes pair the thrill of opera with the freedom of tango. Delve into the life and death of a jazz legend as he searches for redemption from personal demons in Charlie Parker's Yardbird.

Our winter/spring Main Stage Series will feature big and beloved works from the classic repertoire: Ignite your passion through the tragic affair of a courtesan and the man she loves in the classic La Traviata. Immerse yourself in the Christmas Eve truce in Silent Night, as the horrors of World War I are tempered by the compassion of the human heart. Return to Seville for The Marriage of Figaro, where unjust demands and wily antics ultimately give way to forgiveness and true love.
