An inspiring "Season of Dreamers"


Single tickets for the 2011-2012 season are now on sale through the Overture Center Box Office (608-258-4141). Purchase your tickets now to this Season of Dreamers!

I hope you're as excited as I am. My name is Ronia, and I'm the new Manager of Marketing & Community Outreach at Madison Opera. There are a number of new faces at the Monroe Street office, fitting for a season celebrating the spirits of dreamers and risk-takers. We are all thrilled to join Madison Opera as it enters its second half-century. Brian is having a great time as a grad student at the Bolz Center, and I am honored to pick up where he left off, as well as bring my own personal touch to Madison Opera.

In recognition of the joy and tumult that new beginnings bring, I want to share one of my favorite historical recordings of the celebrated "Letter Scene" from Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin:



Madison Opera's not-to-be-missed 51st season opens with the passionate and heartrending Eugene Onegin, featuring the striking Maria Kanyova in the role of Tatiana.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me good wishes, and I'm pleased to be here at Madison Opera, sharing the love of a beautiful art!
