In honor of Opera Omaha’s upcoming new production, AGRIPPINA, Gala chairs Annette and Paul Smith invite you to join conductor Stephen Stubbs and director James Darrah to this event celebrating the exciting premiere.
Opera Omaha invites you to enter the world of Handel’s Agrippina, an opera about the brilliant, beautiful, but murderous mother of Rome’s most infamous Emperor, Nero. Gala guests will enjoy live performances by the stellar cast and be immersed in installation art inspired by Opera Omaha’s stunning new production.
