Ticket Information

  Pagliacci/7 Deadly Sins

Tickets are now on sale for Festival Opera's presentation of Love, Lust & Laughter — An Opera Experience, semi-staged excerpts from three beloved classic operas: Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème and Tosca, and Johann Strauss II's Die Fledermaus. There will be one matinee performance only, on Sunday, July 15 at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek.

Love, Lust & Laughter features a star-studded array of your favorite Festival Opera artists, including Alex Boyer, Eugene Brancoveanu, Betany Coffland, Zachary Gordin, Robert Norman and Philip Skinner, joined by newcomers Carrie Hennessey and Shana Blake Hill.

Make the most of your opera experience by joining the cast on stage during Act II when you opt for a walk-on (non-singing) role. And don't forget to include the next-door after-party in your plans as well. Details on both options below.

A Walk-on Role in Act II
For a truly unique experience, choose the walk-on role option where you'll join the cast on stage as one of the guests at Prince Orlofsky's party in Die Fledermaus. No singing is required, and the price includes both Premiere Seating for Act I and the after-party. You must be available for all rehearsals.

NEW! After-party at Buon Vino
After the performance, help us celebrate 27 years of Festival Opera at the after-party at Buon Vino, just steps from the Lesher Center on Locust Street. Mingle with artists and operagoers over fine wines and appetizers. Just $75 per person, reserve your place at the same time you order your opera tickets.
