Curtis Opera Theatre

Connecting with audiences through imaginative productions, bold concepts, and absorbing theatre, the artists of the Curtis Opera Theatre prepare to become stars of the world’s stages.

The Dangerous Liaisons (POSTPONED)

Fall 2022

Philadelphia Film Center

The schemes and amorous exploits of vengeful widow Marquise de Merteuil result in the death of her former lover, the Vicomte de Valmont, and the woman he truly loves. This tale of jealousy, seduction, and cruelty has captivated audiences for more than 200 years.

The Medium/Triple Sec

Fall 2022

Film release—details to come!

Join us for a double bill of American operas by two of Curtis’s most distinguished alumni. Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Medium is a disturbing tale of a fraudulent psychic’s violent confrontation with the unknown. Marc Blitzstein’s farcical Triple-Sec is a critique of the Roaring Twenties right before they came crashing down.

The Curtis Opera Theatre is generously supported by the Ernestine Bacon Cairns Trust, the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, and the Wyncote Foundation.
