Kennedy Center Theater Lab

Kennedy Center Opera House

Until March 29, 2019

Based on the sweeping Russian novel by celebrated literary great Alexander Pushkin, Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin has all the hallmarks of great opera - a tragic anti-hero, pulse-quickening romance and hotblooded drama. Experience the raw emotion and deeply expressive music of the radiant lyric opera's soaring score during its return to the Washington National Opera's stage, 30 years after it was last performed by the company.

Until March 30, 2019

The Germanic legend of Faust and his deal with the devil has captured the collective imagination over the years with multiple incarnations, including Charles Gounod's French grand opera, arguably the most definitive of all musical iterations. The Washington National Opera brings the thrilling gothic tale to life in the Winter of 2019, conjuring its black magic with a storybook design aesthetic and a dazzling cast that includes Canadian soprano Erin Wall and Argentine tenor Marcelo Puente.

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
