A Message from the President



Parvan Bakardiev, President/CEO


Dear Friends,

 

Wichita Grand Opera’s 2017 Spring Season is just around the corner, and if you haven’t yet experienced the magic of live opera or ballet, this spring is your perfect opportunity.

Our Spring Season opens in April at Century II, with Tchaikovsky’s perennial favorite, The Sleeping Beauty, performed by the Russian National Ballet Theatre.

In May, WGO’s annual Opera Ball returns to the Wichita Hyatt Regency. The Ball is WGO’s social event of the year, bringing artists, celebrities, patrons, and opera aficionados together for an evening of dancing, fun, and fine dining on May 6th.

Opera on the Lake, Wichita Grand Opera’s annual outdoor production at Bradley Fair, is one of the highlights of Wichita’s summer arts scene. In June this year, we are very excited about our company debut of Benjamin Britten’s beloved family opera Noah’s Flood. This family-friendly opera was hailed as “extraordinarily beautiful, vivid and charming” when it premiered in 1958.

Our new production of Noah’s Flood will combine WGO’s stars, chorus, and orchestra with children from all over Wichita, and even invites the audience to sing along in several places. I hope to see all of you at Bradley Fair for this one, and that you come ready to enjoy a truly unique experience.

For more information on the productions in our 2017 Spring Season, which combine the beauty and majesty of opera and ballet, and the unique setting of Opera on the Lake, I invite you to have a look around the rest of our website. Tickets are available now, either through our website, in person at our offices in Century II, or by calling our Box Office at 316-262-8054.

 

Operatically yours,


Parvan Bakardiev
