Our 2021 Repertoire is Available!

To our cherished patrons, we are delighted to announce that the Puppet Opera will be reopening for in person performances on August 4, 2021. We ask that all patrons of Opera in Focus who enter our building follow the current safety protocols in place at Park Central. At this time, unvaccinated patrons must wear a mask at all times while in our building. Fully vaccinated patrons are allowed to occupy the building unmasked, however we ask that all patrons exercise great discretion and basic common sense for the safety of our more vulnerable patrons, especially in larger crowds. 2021 is the 63rd anniversary of the first Opera in Focus performance and also marks our 28th year in Rolling Meadows. We hope that you will join us in celebrating this momentous year by attending a performance soon.
