2017-18 Season

Painted Sky Opera's seasons features three shows about opera's favorite topic - divas.  From the powerful story of Tosca to the ridiculousness of Florence Foster Jenkins to the self-absorption of Three Decembers' Madeleine Mitchell, Painted Sky Opera gives you a chance to see three incarnations of the diva!

Tosca

Shocking and bold, the powerful story and music of Tosca has captivated audiences for more than 110 years.  Puccini’s opera about the fiery diva Tosca and her battle against the fiendish police chief Scarpia is one of his masterworks along with La bohème and Madama Butterfly.

Souvenir

Stephen Temperley details Florence’s rise to “fame” in this hilarious and touching two-person play with incidental music.  Told from the point of view of Florence’s long-suffering pianist, Cosmé McMoon, Souvenir delves into the long relationship between pianist and singer and reveals how true beauty can come from the least beautiful of singing voices.

Three Decembers

Based on a play by Terrence McNally, this opera by modern American composer Jake Heggie follows an aging Broadway star over 20 years as her adult children deal with the fallout of their upbringing and learn the shocking secret that their mother has been keeping from them.  Painted Sky Opera’s production is the Oklahoma premiere.
