UK Opera Theatre Presents Three Blockbuster Productions, Including 'Les Mis'

Published: Sep 3, 2013

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 3, 2013) — Following its biggest season ever, University of Kentucky Opera Theatre (UKOT) aims to break Lexington Opera House box-office records again. From the creative team that brought the unprecedented 11-performance sell out of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "The Phantom of the Opera," UK Opera Theatre presents Alan Boublil and Claude Schönberg’s mega-musical "Les Misérables."

 

UKOT’s production will be the first full-Broadway length production of "Les Mis" in Lexington, and UK is again among the first university programs to present the blockbuster musical. "Les Mis" will be presented for 13 public performances, Oct. 10-20, at the Lexington Opera House.

 

A favorite among opera lovers, UKOT’s season continues with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s masterpiece of love, lust and murder, "Don Giovanni." The tale of Don Juan brings to light the story of the great seducer and the consequences he must face if he doesn’t change. "Don Giovanni" will have four performances March 6-9, 2014, at the Lexington Opera House.

 

"Grand Night XXII" concludes the 2013-14 season. Hailed as the official kick off to the summer musical season in Lexington, the annual town and gown affair attracts audiences year after year to hear Broadway, Top 40 and cinema hits. "Grand Night XXII" will be presented six times June 13-22, 2014, at the Singletary Center for the Arts.

 

Single tickets for all three shows go on sale at 10 a.m. today (Tuesday), Sept. 3. Tickets for "Les Mis" and "Don Giovanni" are sold through the Lexington Center Box Office and can be purchased in person at Rupp Arena or by calling 859-233-3535. Tickets for "Grand Night XXII" are available at the Singletary Center Ticket Office, and can be purchased online at www.scfatickets.com, by calling 859-257-4929, or in person.

 

The UK School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts has garnered a national reputation for high-caliber education in opera, choral and instrumental music performance, as well as music education, composition, and theory and music history.
