Kentucky Opera is set to present revenge, fairy tales, and other stories during its 2012-13 season.
During the 2012-13 season, Kentucky Opera will present three shows: Tosca (September), Cinderella (November), and Don Giovanni (February 2013).
Season subscriptions depend on the seat location and range from $82 to $253. Valet parking for the season, tickets for The Prodigal Son, and other options may also be avaliable. Subscription information can be found at the Kentucky Opera website or by calling 502-584-4500.
Kentucky Opera will open the season with Tosca in September. Set in 1800 Rome, the beautiful voice of opera singer Floria Tosca must sacrifice more than she ever anticipated in order to stay with her true love. Revenge and corruption, meanwhile, stand in her way. Tosca performances will go on September 21, 23, and 28.
The classic fairy tale Cinderella follows in November. No, this is not the Disney feature or the Rodgers and Hammerstein version but one created by Jules Massenet and based on Charles Perrault's Cendrillon. However, it features the classic love story of Cinderella, her Prince Charming, and her Fairy Godmother. The Kentucky Opera premiere will occur on November 2 and 4.
Closing out the Kentucky Opera season will be Don Giovanni. Giovanni has left a trail of women in his love wake. Yet, despite others asking him to stop persuing them, Giovanni continues to pursue the women. Pretty soon, it's going to come to haunt him in the form of revenge. Kentucky Opera will perform Don Giovanni on Feburary 15 and 17, 2013.
Finally, for those that choose to subscribe for the season, Kentucky Opera will present The Prodigal Son in October. The story of temptation and redemption will be performed on October 4 and 5 at St. Francis of the Fields Episcopal Church.
