Announcing: the Thirteenth Season

Vashon Opera has been busy making opera by hand, in small batches with local ingredients like betrayal, drama, folly, heartache, indulgence, pride, vanity and redemption for over thirteen years. We’re pleased to announce the Thirteenth Season which includes two exquisite masterpieces: Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos and Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto. Get ready for another killer season of opera right here on Vashon!

Season Tickets go on sale in early June. Sign up for our Libretto email series below to get notified when they're on sale!

A recipe for delight, or disaster?

Turns lemons into limoncello in just 2 acts!

In September, Ariadne auf Naxos will mark Vashon Opera’s first foray into the repertoire of Richard Strauss with this beautiful and complex composition. Through the examination of highbrow art and lowbrow comedy in its opera-within-an-opera structure, you’ll be wowed by stunning arias and amused by the hilarious circumstances that ensue!

vashon opera presents rigoletto may 5 and may 7

Mockery. Mayhem. Misinformation. Murder.

Or, as we call it, just another night at the palazzo.

In May 2023, comes Verdi’s unbelievably gorgeous and ground-breaking opera, Rigoletto. Not for the faint-hearted, Rigoletto is exciting and gritty. Verdi weaves a richly illuminated tapestry bucking some of the musical traditions of the day making for a fast-paced, action-packed evening complete with a nobleman’s curse, an assassin, a thunderstorm and one of opera’s all-time greatest hit tunes. An opera much beloved by everyone who experiences it, you’ll be glad you got to see it up close with Vashon Opera.
