Northern Lights Festival Opera

Under the guidance of Musical Director Gavriel Heine of St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre, the Northern Lights Festival Opera has become the cornerstone of the Northern Lights Music Festival.

What began as an effort to involve the community in a wildly successful production of Britten's Noyes Fludde in 2007, led to annual mainstage productions of Hansel and Gretel, Carmina Burana, Gianni Schicchi and Pagliacci.

In 2013, Northern Lights reached another landmark when it staged its first full-length, four-act opera, Puccini's La Bohème. Bizet's Carmen followed in 2014 with Lehar's The Merry Widow in 2015 and Madama Butterfly last year.
