Juneau Lyric Opera’s upcoming production of “Cavalleria Rusticana” has been postponed.
The opera was originally scheduled to open Jan. 31 and run through Feb. 2, but instead it has been pushed back until an unspecified set of dates in August, said Sara Radke Brown, JLO’s Executive Director.
“We’re going to plan for one of two weekends in August,” she said. “We should know here pretty soon which day it is.”
Radke Brown said the postponement was caused by illness of some of opera’s cast. She said it made more sense to postpone the show than to attempt to fill multiple roles with a rapidly approaching opening.
Refunds are available for those who have already purchased tickets by either calling Juneau Lyric Opera at 586-2742 or by going to the Juneau Arts & Culture Center, 350 Whittier St.
Radke Brown said things are still proceeding with Juneau Lyric Opera’s next planned event, which is “An Afternoon of Ave Marias.”
Shows are slated for 3 and 5 p.m. Sunday, May 19 at the Shrine of St. Therese.
Tickets for the event will go on sale in April.
