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 Carmina Burana, Gianni Schicchi, Hansel and Gretel and Pagliacci.
This past season saw the mounting of NLMF first full-length opera, Puccini's romantic masterpiece La Boheme. A sold-out performance in Aurora was followed by performances to appreciative audiences in Chisholm and Ely. With such overwhelming support Northern Lights looks to continue its presentation of professional level opera on the Range.
Information on our 2014 production will be forthcoming.
