Ash Lawn Opera live at The Paramount

paramountAsh Lawn Opera returns to The Paramount Theater for another summer series of live musical performances with acclaimed artists from the Metropolitan Opera.

The summer season kicks off with Così Fan Tutte, one of Mozart’s most memorable operas. The witty and heartfelt story begins with a game of love and seduction when two young men decide to test their fiancées’ fidelity, only for both couples to discover the fickleness of attraction. This comedic classic, full of mistaken identities, deceptive servants, jealous lovers, and sublime music, is a production you won’t want to miss.

The summer Ash Lawn Opera season then concludes with South Pacific, an ever-topical story of love in the time of war, and one of the most heralded musicals of all time. Since its premiere in 1949, it has won countless awards, including the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Awards both for its original run and its 2008 revival. Featuring some of the greatest songs in musical theater history, including “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy,” and “A Cockeyed Optimist,” this remarkable production will stay with you for years to come.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at The Paramount Theater’s Box Office, by phone (434) 979-1333, or online at Tickets for all events start at just $25.00. All ticket holders are invited to an educational and enlightening lecture 45 minutes before every performance.
