Pre-Performance Talks

How long does it take to produce an opera? Who builds the costumes, props and sets? How is the aesthetic and philosophical concept for each production chosen? From opera newbies to the operaphiles, join Aubrey Baker, Kentucky Opera Director of Community Programs, to explore your opera questions in this insider’s discussion of the Mainstage opera productions. Pre-Performance Talks are open to all ticket holders with encouraged RSVP. They take place in the Brown Rehearsal Hall located on the 2nd floor. They begin one hour before curtain and run 35 minutes.
