Overview

From operas presented in reconfigured army barracks to those mounted on a stage rivaling that of New York’s Metropolitan Opera House, Indiana University Opera Theater has grown into a world-class training ground for opera's next generation. A lavishly illustrated history, Opera for All Seasons captures the excitement, hard work, and talent that distinguish each performance and that have made IU Opera Theater what it is today. More than 300 photos and drawings illustrate six decades of opera production from the inaugural Tales of Hoffman, a legendary Parsifal, and a performance of Martin’s Greek Passion at the Met, to the 2008 La Bohème—the first opera streamed live on the internet from Indiana University to a worldwide audience. Opera lovers will delight in this sumptuous memento of IU Opera Theater’s glorious history.
