Charlottesville Opera, the recently renamed Ash Lawn Opera, kicks off its 40th season with the East Coast premiere of Middlemarch in Spring, a new chamber opera that asks the question: Does love get a second chance? Tickets are on sale now at www.theparamount.net!
The 40th Anniversary Season reflects Ash Lawn Opera’s transformation into Charlottesville Opera, with today’s and tomorrow’s stars singing both new and established works. The new name signals the company’s strong base in the local community and recognizes the distance it has come.
In collaboration with the Virginia Festival of the Book, Rebecca Mead, author of My Life in Middlemarch and staff writer at the New Yorker, will present a lecture one hour before the Thursday, March 23 performance of Middlemarch in Spring.
