June 12-22

The mysterious Spanish beauty is an untamed spirit—hypnotic in her allure, coolly crushing hearts. When she tangles with José, an unsuspecting soldier, he’s blindsided, then spellbound, and soon, utterly obsessed. What begins as flirtation descends into something sinister … something from which Carmen may never escape.

Silent NightSilent Night
Kevin Puts & Mark Campbell
July 11 & 12

Bloodied from battle and mourning the dead, soldiers lament a seemingly endless war. As evening sets in, a carol begins, floating softly over the trenches. One voice becomes many, and would-be enemies lay down their arms to celebrate a precious night of peace and hope.

Madame ButterflyMadame Butterfly
Giacomo Puccini
July 24 & 26

A naïve young geisha, Cio-Cio-San, falls for a handsome U.S. naval officer, who loves her and leaves, promising to return. So, for three years, she waits. Then, one fine day, he does return. For a moment, Cio-Cio-San is triumphant, blind to the heartbreak that awaits her.

La CalistoLa Calisto
Francesco Cavalli
July 17 - 27

Jove, ruler of the gods, sets his sights on the beautiful nymph Calisto. But she—a devotee of the goddess Diana—is sworn to die a virgin. Undeterred, Jove hatches a plan to wend his way into her heart (and her bed) by donning a Diana-like disguise. But when Jove’s wife catches wind of the scheme, neither god nor mortal can know how far her fury will go.
