SummerFest mixes it up—rich, rare, delicious opera is our main dish, but it comes with delightful side treats: chamber concerts and family fun, folk dancing and fine dancing, art exhibits and late night cabaret—and a whole lost of festive food and drink options. You can enjoy gourmet dining before a show, or linger afterwards for more music, merriment, and a glass of wine while listening to our artists sing their favorite Broadway and light opera standards.
The SummerFest brand of opera is different, too. It's great—but it's not 'grand'. It's up-close-and-personal with a distinctly modern feel and everything sung in English. There's a SummerFest opera for everyone—from kids to adults, beginners to aficionados, and matinee folks to a late-night crowd.
SummerFest brings together a pack of independently-spirited, joyfully unconventional people to celebrate community as well as cultural values. Take the main festival opera, concerts, Mozart Camp. Add in other activities—dance, exhibitions, cabaret, family entertainment. Mix in the social side—fine dining, parties with the artists—and you have SummerFest—a new sort of festival experience—a feastival!
