To our cherished patrons, we are delighted to announce that our 2022 season will commence on February 9th. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, all patrons of Opera in Focus who enter our building must follow the current safety protocols in place at Park Central. At this time, all patrons and puppeteers are required to wear a mask when inside Park Central regardless of vaccination status. Reservations are also currently required for all performances (walk-ins will no longer be admitted until further notice). We will keep this page updated as changes in protocol occur, so check back here for updates. 2022 is the 64th anniversary of the first Opera in Focus performance and also marks our 29th year in Rolling Meadows. We hope that you will join us in celebrating this momentous year by attending a performance soon.
