We were so pleased with the turn out at our Season Opener GALA on Saturday, June 22.

Our audience joined us at the Delaware Youth Center in Callicoon, New York for an evening of music and good food as we showcased some of the incredible talent the DVO has to offer. Offering a tasty buffet that appeal to the appetite, along with a taste of the season’s upcoming productions to whet your musical appetite for the upcoming productions to follow close on the heels of our season kick off event!


We couldn't have brought the evening off without the help of these two wonderful gentlemen, Miklos Kiraly and Sebastian Jonas Kiraly. Thanks, guys!

River Revels Winter Soltice Celebration River Revels 2018

We look forward to this summer as the Delaware Valley Opera continues its 4th decade with a season that’s sure to please!

Gian Carlo Menotti’s “The Telephone” and “The Medium”
July 27 & 28, August 3 & 4, 2019

These two short operas by Gian Carlo Menotti, known to many as the composer of Amahl and the Night Visitors, were first paired as a double bill when originally produced in the late 1940s.

The Telephone, or L’Amour à trois is a humorous look at the way the telephone became a third party in the romantic relationship between a young couple, Lucy and Ben. Written over seventy years ago, we can still relate to the way this ubiquitous invention plays a large role in our lives today! Featuring Brooke Schooley, Soprano, as Lucy.

The Medium is a darker piece, exploring the boundaries of reality for all involved in the drama. In today’s world, where more and more we are challenged to assess what is real and what is “fake news,” Madame Flora’s struggle with this issue leads to a sad and tragic ending. Featuring Janice Meyerson, Mezzo-Soprano, as Madame Flora.

Join us as the Her Majesty’s Ship, the Pinafore, drops anchor in Portsmouth and welcomes Sir Joseph Porter and his bevy of sisters, cousins, and aunts aboard. One of G&S’s earliest and most popular creations, you’ll see why it became a cultural sensation, sailing on a sea of tunes ranging from bouncy to beautiful!
