Dayton Opera - Rigoletto

November 9 - 11, 2018

An electrifying whirlwind of revenge, Verdi's Rigoletto is a must see for all opera-goers, be they seasoned or beginners. Blazing and intense, it tells the story of a curse thrown by a grieving father and the far-reaching influence of paranoia and vengeance as the title character fights to protect his beloved daughter. Combined with a heart-wrenching score that reflects the white-hot heat of passion, don't miss this unforgettable production, presented by the Dayton Opera.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Poster

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

November 16 - 17, 2018

Based on the beloved 1964 animated special, this adaptation brings everyone's favourite reindeer to the stage. This classic tale teaches the importance of friendship and respect, whilst getting everyone very excited for Christmas in the process!

Beach Boys

November 19, 2018

Let the celebrations commence! It's hard to believe that these guys have been helping the world to rock and roll for five decades since releasing "Fun Fun Fun" but there you have it. This tour will also mark the official introduction of singer/guitarist Jeffrey Foskett, who has worked regularly with the group since 1981, as a permanent member of the Beach Boys touring band, well overdue in our opinion. He replaces Christian Love, who left the group to embark on a solo career.
