Big Night

A SPECIAL CONCERT

Conducted by George Manahan
Hosted by Christopher Mattaliano

CELEBRATE A WONDERFUL NIGHT OUT WITH PORTLAND OPERA!

Join us for a one-night-only celebration concert and enjoy some of the most beautiful music ever composed! Our chorus and orchestra take center stage, joining soloists for a special program of operatic gems and beloved arias.

You’ll hear Bizet, Mozart, Puccini, Verdi, and more! We’ll add to the celebration with a special reveal of our upcoming 19/20 season, and perhaps even a surprise or two.

Featuring the Portland Opera Orchestra and Chorus. 


About our production

Performed in many languages with English captions.
Approximately 90 minutes. No intermission.

Music and sweeping melodies take center stage with our chorus and orchestra! This one-night-only celebration is not an opera—it doesn’t feature sets, costumes, or a full production—but it is jam packed with some of opera’s most beloved pieces. The program will feature guest soloists, as well as the Portland Opera Resident Artists. We’ll hear opera in many languages, from some of the most celebrated composers, with English captions throughout the program.
