Rock Opera!

Bradley Fair, Wichita’s premier lifestyle center, once again hosts WGO’s gift to the community, Opera on the Lake. This year’s theme will bring out the edgier side of the WGO with “Rock Opera!” Join us to see what happens when we show you how Opera can REALLY rock!

With genre’s spanning from Grand Opera, including such titles as La Bohème and Don Giovanni, to head-banging rock hits like R.E.N.T., The Who’s Tommy and Hair, and quintessential Andrew Lloyd Webber masterworks like The Phantom of the Opera and Jesus Christ Superstar, this evening under the Kansas sky will have something for every music lover’s taste.

WGO’s President and CEO Dennis Arnold takes on the mantle of Director for this rock opera celebration and WGO stalwart Shayna Leahy will be conductor for the evening and manage production.

KWCH Morning Anchor and WGO Alum Natalie Davis return as emcee for Opera on the Lake and will be joined by a host of outstanding opera and musical theatre artists.

Kicking off Opera on the Lake: Rock Opera!, Wichita Grand Opera welcomes the members of Flight ICT. This Wichita Area Showchoir, will perform at the start of the production and join our soloists throughout the evening.

As always, Opera on the Lake is free to the public – the performance begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, May 30, 2019 on Bradley Fair Plaza. Guests are welcome to arrive and bring their own lawn chair or blanket to enjoy a spectacular evening of music. For guests who prefer to have a seat ready and waiting for them, a limited number of Reserved Seats are available for $45 which include an assigned seat for the performance.

Guests wishing to make the evening a grand night out can take advantage of WGO’s VIP Dinner and Performance Seating. Ticket prices are $150 per guest or $1,000 for a table of eight. Guests will be treated to a three-course dinner from Newport Grill with a prime view of the performance. Join us for cocktails at 6:00pm. Dinner is served at 6:30pm, and the performance begins at 7:00 p.m.
