Mourning Becomes Electra
Mourning Becomes Electra, the tragic tale of family relationships gone awry plays out. Two murders and two suicides in three acts pretty much sums up the family dynamics. The story is an update of the Greek myth of Orestes and was composed by Fort Lauderdale resident Marvin David Levy.

In the opera that put Giuseppe Verdi on the map, follow the plight of the Jews of Babylonia as they are assaulted, conquered, and ultimately exiled from their homeland. Within this backdrop of exiles yearning for their homeland is a love story, but can love flourish in such a place and time?

This opera-fan favorite recounts the melodramatic story of a beautiful opera singer, Floria Tosca, and a lecherous police chief, Baron Scarpia, who unleashes a lustful plan. The tale plays out to a murderous and powerful ending. Composer Giacomo Puccini has never been better.

This opera by Jules Massenet is set in ancient Egypt, where the seduction comes in the form of a beautiful courtesan named Thaïs. A monk makes it his mission to redeem her, but becomes obsessed with her erotic allure. Redemption or lust – what proves stronger?
