A BOISE SUMMER TRADITION: Kicking off the season, the fourth annual Opera in the Park has enthralled Idahoans for three consecutive summers and now boasts over 2,500 attendees. This free community concert event will be held in the picturesque Julia Davis Park on July 13, 2024 at 8:30 pm. Featured guest artists include soprano Cecilia Violetta López, mezzo soprano Olga Flora, tenor Jamie Flora, and baritone Octavio Moreno, accompanied by the Opera Idaho orchestra under the direction of Maestro Andy Anderson. The event will be emceed by new General Director, Stacey Trenteseaux, and Boise’s own local celebrity, KTVB’s Mellisa Paul. It will be an afternoon full of fun and festivities for all ages including local food trucks, a beer and wine garden, face painting, a VIP tent, a summer sing-a-long and a sublime evening of some of the most beautiful music ever written! Bring your picnic and experience the joy, music, and warmth of community.

FALL FOR OPERA: In 2024, the world is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the death of one of the greatest composers of all time: Giacomo Puccini. As summer turns to fall and Idaho’s natural landscape transforms into a dramatic collage of vibrant color, Opera Idaho celebrates with a Puccini double bill: Gianni Schicchi and Suor Angelica. Deception and swindlers, family feuds and melodrama, raucous ruses and puppy love, sacrifice and redemption: audiences will laugh, cry, and die for this tragicomedy duo at the Egyptian Theatre on October 4 and 6, 2024.

Not ready for the full operatic experience? Try a little taste of opera accompanied by dinner and drinks at one of our Operatinis in the Sapphire Room at the Riverside Hotel. Starting October 24, 2024, we continue our Operatini series featuring a spectacular selection of guest and local artists singing your favorite opera, musical theatre, and jazz selections. Get your tickets and subscriptions early! These shows sell out fast.

WINTER REFLECTIONS: As the holiday season draws near, Critical Mass Vocal Artists (CMVA) begin their annual four-concert series: “Impressions and Reflections”, an array of stunning a cappella choral works starting November 2, 2024 . In December, both the Opera Idaho Children’s Choruses and CMVA bring back two holiday favorites: the annual Children’s Choruses Concert and A Christmas Carol, a collaboration with Rediscovered Books first brought to life in December 2023.

Cure the mid-winter blues with dinner, drinks, and dancing at the annual Black and White Opera Idaho Gala on February 8, 2025. In March, as winter nears its end and the first glimpses of spring begin to peek through the cold, Idaho mountain snow, Verdi’s La Traviata featuring soprano Cecilia Violetta López, the Daughter of Idaho, singing her signature role at the Egyptian Theatre on March 7 and 9, 2025. An all-star cast of sensational voices retell the virtue, rise, and fall of Violetta Valéry, a demimondaine or Parisian courtesan suffering from consumption, and Alfredo Germont, a young bourgeois whose tragic love story was cut short by infirmity and 19 century societal expectations.

SPRING INTO SONG: Like the blossoms of the Boise foothills, spring concerts and themed Operatinis sprinkle beautiful music across the cultural landscape. In a special add-on concert event, the Boise Phil will feature Opera Idaho as a guest artist in their Broadway Pops concert at the Morrison Center on April 26 and 27. For a special two-night Operatini in May 2025, internationally acclaimed mezzo soprano, Kirstin Chávez, performs her one-woman tour de force, Carmen Inside Out: a poignant retelling of Bizet’s masterpiece with vocal prowess, authentic flamenco dance sequences, and an intense face-to-face encounter with Carmen’s smoldering charisma.

With so much variety and value, Opera Idaho offers something for everyone in their 2024-2025 season.
