Don Giovanni presented by Lyric Opera of the North

Lights, camera...OPERA!

June 22, 2018 - June 24, 2018

Friday @ 7:30pm | Sunday @ 3:00pm



Lyric Opera of the North celebrates the opening of the NorShor with a production of Don Giovanni set in the “Golden Age” of 1930s Hollywood.

In this Mozart-meets-the-movies production, our leading man uses his power to play with the lives of everyone on set. But every action has a consequence, and although he’s well-rehearsed—nothing could prepare him as the line between fantasy and reality blur at the movie studio.

Christina Baldwin directs, Dirk Meyer conducts, and Calland Metts stars in the title role.

Killer Queen

Jade presents

November 6, 2018

Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm


Killer Queen formed back in 1993. Their first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first shows there 21 years earlier. By 1995 Killer Queen’s UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in London’s Strand
Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage – the first tribute to have a show in the West End.

  • Reserved seating
  • Tickets: $55 (additional fees may apply)

The band’s reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad. In 1999, they returned from a tour of Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band.”

Queen’s music is loved the world over. Their songs have inspired generations. Recreating the songs on a world stage takes a great deal of skill and Killer Queen’s musicianship is outstanding. During their various careers, the musicians have worked and recorded with a vast array of artists including Roger Taylor, Brian May, and Monseratte Caballe. The band also scored a number one hit when they were asked to recreate Queen’s harmonies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim in 2001.
