2021 Festival

Tickets Now On Sale

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with The Hudson Gardens & Event Center to host our 2021 Festival in their beautiful outdoor amphitheater. While our mainstage productions of Carousel and Rigoletto will be open-air, socially-distanced performances at Hudson Gardens, we will still be present in Central City this summer. Our company members will reside and rehearse in Central City. We will present Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas in the Central City Opera House Gardens. Additional outdoor performances have also been planned in Central City, including the return of our popular Al Fresco concert series.
