2023-24 Opera and Dance Season

Madame Butterfly

October 7 - 15, 2023

An American soldier’s fantasy of Japan, seductive but harmful. A teenaged Japanese girl and a marriage that comes with an escape clause – for him. An all-Japanese and Japanese-American creative team transports Puccini’s tragedy to a fantastical contemporary setting where reality and dreams intersect.

Arias and Overtures: Detroit Opera in Concert

October 28, 2023

In his first season as Music Director, Roberto Kalb brings the Detroit Opera Orchestra onstage for a concert featuring superstar singers including soprano Christine Goerke (Detroit Opera’s Associate Artistic Director), baritone Rod Gilfry, tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz, soprano Mané Galoyan, countertenor Key’mon Murrah, and Detroit Opera’s Resident Artists. Music will range from Verdi and Bernstein to Spanish zarzuela selections—and much more.


Compañía Nacional de Danza: Carmen

January 17, 2024

Detroit Opera House debut! Spain’s Compañía Nacional de Danza will perform Carmen, in choreographer Johan Inger’s reimagined version of Georges Bizet’s opera. This will be the only U.S. performance of Inger’s Carmen during the company’s North American tour. The staging is a contemporary look at Prosper Mérimée’s story of passion and vengeance as seen through the eyes of a child.


Europeras: 3&4

March 8 - 10 2024

Detroit Opera Premiere, perfomed at Detroit's Gem Theatre! Pioneering composer John Cage reassembles European opera tradition as a collage. Stage action and the music itself are directed by a digital Europeraclock in place of a conductor. You’ll still hear famous arias, layered in a whole new way in Cage’s entertaining collage. The return of live theater to the Gem for the first time in a decade!  


Batsheva Dance Company: MOMO 

March 23 - 24, 2024   - CANCELLED

Dear Detroit Opera patrons,
We regrettably need to cancel our March production of Batsheva Dance Company’s MOMO. See the official statement from Batsheva below:
The Batsheva Dance Company has decided to postpone its US tour planned for March 2024.“We are in deep pain and still grieving the ongoing loss of innocent civilians’ lives from both sides in the war between Israel and Hamas. We strive to create a future of equality, dignity and peace for us and the Palestinian people. We look forward to returning to the US when we can perform again for our beloved American audiences in better days.”  


Detroit Opera presents Missy Mazzoli and Royce Vavrek's Breaking the Waves April 6-14 2024

Breaking the Waves

April 6 - 14, 2024

Missy Mazzoli and Royce Vavrek’s heart-wrenching opera tells the story of a woman – isolated, trapped in an extreme environment, with no way out – defending her marriage and defying her community of faith.

Detroit Opera Youth Chorus: Odyssey

April 20, 2024

Homer’s epic tale of a hero’s journey home has been wedded to the singing voice in Ben Moore and Kelley Rourke’s action-packed, colorful operatic rendition.


The Cunning Little Vixen

May 11 - 19, 2024

Human and animal worlds collide in Janáček’s enchanting, cinematic modern fable about a clever vixen who tries to outwit her captors. The production uses playful projections to transform singers into forest creatures, with hand-crafted animations that evoke the fable’s comic-strip origins.
