Opera Orlando concludes its 2023-24 All for Art season with a dark retelling of Grimm’s THE JUNIPER TREE, a contemporary chamber opera by composers Philip Glass and Robert Moran to a libretto by Arthur Yorinks.


Taking place at the ALEXIS & JIM PUGH THEATER at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Friday May 10, and Saturday May 11, THE JUNIPER TREE will be sung in English with English and Spanish supertitles.


A pre-show talk, free for all ticket holders, will be held on stage 50 minutes prior to each performance, as well as a talkback following each performance with the creative team.



This tale about a jealous and scheming stepmother who murders her stepson and serves him up in a stew to his unsuspecting father, only to then meet her own dramatic end, is a haunting and hypnotic opera with some of Glass’ most tuneful melodies.


In partnership with Victorian spook troupe Phantasmagoria and Orlando Family Stage, local stage director John DiDonna has conceived a feast for the senses with dance, puppetry, spectacle, and of course, gorgeous singing. International conductor Geoffrey Loff will make his Company debut leading a fantastic cast featuring Opera Orlando 2023-24 season Studio Artists and the Opera Orlando Youth Company.


Tickets start at $49, and are available via the Dr Phillips Center website.
