Kennedy Center Opera House

June 16 - September 20, 2020

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

It's been running in Boston at the Charles Playhouse for over 30 years, and has enjoyed hugely successful productions the world over.

Until May 25, 2019

The 2018/19 season hails a return for Puccini's searing masterpiece. Consistently a sought-after work in any company's repertoire, Tosca is a thrilling tale that transports us to Rome in 1800 where society is beholden to Napoleon's Army amassing at its border. In its midst stands the famed opera singer Tosca and her lover Cavaradossi, who are plunged into a gripping conspiracy of politics, tyranny and tragedy. A pure classic, Tosca is a must-see for any opera-goer!
