Rodolfo, a poet, and his friends, Marcello, Schaunard, and Colline, manage to have an enjoyable take on life despite their extreme financial difficulties. During the cold winter, a torrid romance is kindled between Rodolfo and a beautiful seamstress named Mimì, but love is not the only thing lurking in the city; tragedy and sadness await them all. Come join us for this tale of love and loss that is sure to touch “... everyone’s heart with its renowned and passionate musical brilliance.”
In Europe during the 19th century, the “Salon” was a popular type of private, musical, and social event that took place in grand homes of significant patrons of music and musicians. It usually featured a pianist performing Romantic music, but could include music from the stage as well. Our Salon Music from the Silver Screen will be an evening of music from great films of the golden era of film. You will hear iconic songs like “Singin’ in the Rain,” “I got Rhythm,” and “Try to Remember,” as well as music from films like The Wizard of Oz, Hello Dolly, Annie Get Your Gun, and many more. There is no better city in the world for a “Salon” than Natchez, and there is no more beautiful setting for such an event than “The Towers.”
The Natchez Festival of Music proudly presents A Day of Peace and Music: A Woodstock Golden Anniversary Celebration. Come hear the music of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and many other artists whose names are burned into the pages of musical history because of their iconic performances at Woodstock in 1969. Originally billed as “Three Days of Peace & Music,” the Woodstock Festival was truly a one-of-a-kind experience! More than half a million people came to see 32+ acts that performed during that weekend. Come to A Day of Peace and Music and relive this turning point in American music history.
The timeless tale, unspeakable heartbreak, told like never before.
It is the iconic story of the U.S. naval officer and the geisha girl, told through Puccini’s achingly beautiful score. But wait: how could either of them possibly have understood a word of what the other was saying? In a co-production with Pacific Opera Project (Los Angeles), OH! will dare to tell the story with a new bilingual (Japanese and English) libretto in this unprecedented presentation.

So what if... what if a brash American naval officer and a young Japanese girl met and fell in love? How would they communicate? (Certainly not in Italian!) In POP’s most ambitous production to date, Artistic Director Josh Shaw’s long-time dream of a bilingual Madama Butterfly comes to life at The Aratani Theatre in Little Tokyo. All Japanese roles will be sung in Japanese (by Japanese-American artists) and all American roles will be sung in English. This is a co-production with Opera in the Heights (Houston). This production is sponsored in part by an Innovations Grant from Opera America.
