2022-23 Opera and Dance Season


The Valkyries

September 17-20, 2022

A high-tech treatment of the most famous act in Wagner’s Ring Cycle makes this an experience you will not want to miss. Detroit Opera’s own Yuval Sharon and Christine Goerke join forces in this unique production which zooms in on the drama of Act III, beginning with the unforgettable “Ride of the Valkyries” and ending with “Magic Fire Music.”


Alonzo King LINES Ballet

October 22-23, 2022

Celebrating 40 years of evocative dance, master choreographer Alonzo King’s unique artistic vision adheres to the classical form—the linear, mathematical and geometrical principles deeply rooted in the East-West continuum.



November 12-20, 2022

With music that has almost never been heard in 150 years, this version restores Gounod’s original version – with newly discovered scenes and music – in a revelatory take on the classic story about a deal with the devil. American stars Talise Trevigne and Jonathan Johnson star as Marguerite and Faust, with Robert Pomakov as Méphistophélès.


Mark Morris Dance Group: The Hard Nut

February 26-27, 2022

Set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music (with live orchestra), Mark Morris Dance Group’s The Hard Nut is a beloved retro-modern reimagining of The Nutcracker, which channeled the warm spirit of this holiday tradition into the swinging 70’s with “fun and amazement dance in the same step” (The New York Times).


Aida in Concert

December 30, 2022

A rare peek behind the spectacle of the intimate drama and stunning music Verdi was a master of weaving together. A special one-night-only offering with a stellar cast: Detroit Opera’s own Christine Goerke and soprano Angel Blue both make role debuts under the baton of Jonathon Heyward.


Ballet Preljocaj: Swan Lake

February 17-19, 2023

Combining Tchaikovsky’s musical masterpiece with contemporary arrangements, he reinvents the timeless tale of love, betrayal, seduction, and remorse into a contemporary ecological tragedy. The evil sorcerer von Rothbart is portrayed as an industrialist who wants to exploit fossil fuels against a backdrop of unbridled capitalism, while Siegfried and Odette are the two eco-conscious heroes who try to thwart his plans.



March 4-12, 2023

A fast-paced mix of comedy and drama, this was Handel at his most innovative – and Tazewell Thompson’s striking and sumptuous production brings out all its many wonders.  The jaw-dropping musicality of countertenor Key’mon Murrah and soprano Laren Snouffer will make this an unforgettable feast for the sense, with the renowned Handel specialist Dame Jane Glover conducting.


Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

March 17-19, 2023

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has for more than 50 years entertained generations, transcended barriers and celebrated the African American cultural experience. Now, under the leadership of visionary artistic director Robert Battle, don’t miss this Detroit favorite as they honor the legacy of their founder while developing the next generation of choreographers.



April 8-16, 2023

Flamenco, rumba rhythms, and classical singing are woven together by one of today’s most exciting composers, Osvaldo Golijov.  Ainadamar (“Fountain of Tears”) tells the tragic story of legendary poet, playwright, and national icon Federico Garcia Lorca, assassinated by fascists during the Spanish Civil War.  The score is “destined to be among the great musical achievements of our time,” raves the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
