Wagner's opera Forbidden Love is an exuberant youthful work, created long before Wagner became the " 𝖂𝖆𝖌𝖓𝖊𝖗 " of Germanic mythology. Mounting this exciting production is an enormous undertaking that needs your financial support. You can help us bring this rousing and delightful work to life with your donation.
 

We welcome all donations! And if you love opera and want to take an active role in our show, please consider being a sponsor. Depending on your level of donation, sponsorships include complimentary tickets, your name prominently in our program, a dress rehearsal, and a Champagne Soiree to meet and listen to your sponsee and share an evening with opera lovers like you.

By helping to underwrite our outstanding performers and directors, you make it possible for us to bring timeless music and drama to a wide audience. 

Forbidden Love is a glimpse into Wagner’s youthful, lighter side. Based on Shakespeare’s Measure for MeasureForbidden Love explores the traditional clash between puritanical, restrained sexuality and all too human self-abandoned eroticism. Young Wagner, at 23, gives us rousing, exuberant 19th C comic opera with hints of the “Wagner” to come!
