A Message from The Kentucky Opera:
Kentucky Opera has been closely watching the situation with the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic in our region. We have been following recommendations from state and local officials and the Center for Disease Control to keep our staff, artists, and children safe during rehearsals for our upcoming performances of Robin Hood.
Due to these unusual and unpredictable circumstances, and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to postpone performances of our youth opera Robin Hood. Kentucky Opera offices will be closed through March 23rd. Both performances of Robin Hood will be moved to matinée performances on May 9th and 10th.
We are aware that the risks are still very low, but we want to ensure the health and well-being of all involved in this upcoming production, as well as all of our patrons. These local youth have already put in much hard work rehearsing with their music and stage directors, and we look forward to sharing this moving and powerful youth opera with our community in May.
We hope you will still be able to join us on these dates. If you have a ticket for the Friday evening performance, your tickets will be moved to Saturday, May 9th at 2pm (matinee). Sunday tickets will now be honored on Sunday, May 10th at 2pm (matinee). If you would like to switch your tickets to an alternate date, please call the Kentucky Performing Arts box office at 502-584-7777. If you are unable to attend on these new dates, you may use the credit toward a future ticket purchase at Kentucky Opera or donate your tickets back as a tax deductible donation.
We all have the power to do good in this world — if we choose.
The culmination of our inaugural Youth Opera Program, this production is a fresh take on the classic childhood tale performed by youth for youth and their families. Faced with corruption from the tyrannical Sheriff, Robin follows the voice of his heart and leads a merry band of ordinary citizens to change their world.
