Loved the deal price on the has been quite a while since we have been due to the rising cost of the performances.

In a word, beautiful.

For a small town in Virginia, the Opera Roanoke puts out a great performance. I enjoyed this live performance better than the Met's televised production I saw earlier this spring. Both Hope Briggs and Scott Piper sang beautifully. The set design was simple but perfect for the small stage and the Roanoke Symphony did a great job. It was an great afternoon, worth a drive from Lexington.

What You'll Get

Future opera singers are easily identified at birth due to their multi-octave crying and graceful bows as they emerge from the womb. Check out how far these tiny miracles have come with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $40, you get two tickets to Opera Roanoke's production of Il Trovatore in the Shaftman Performance Hall of the Jefferson Center (an $84.40 value, including taxes and fees). Seating is located in the rear orchestra on the main floor. Choose between the following performances:

  • Friday, October 14, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with an Opera Insights preshow discussion at 7 p.m. and the show starting at 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, October 16, at 2:30 p.m. Doors open at 1 p.m., with an Opera Insights preshow discussion at 1:30 p.m. and the show starting at 2:30 p.m.

In its 35th year, the Roanoke Opera enthusiastically recreates opera’s most esteemed masterpieces, teaming up with the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra to fill stages with powerful scores and dramatic stories. As the curtain rises on Verdi’s classic Il Trovatore, audiences enter a strange world in which mistaken identities and long-held quests for vengeance complicate the wholesome passion of a love triangle. As war rages and characters desperately seek romance and a trebuchet that fits in the theater's balcony, four great singers raise their voices in piercing solos. During the performance, Groupon holders will sit in the rear orchestra on the main floor, enjoying a panoramic view of the production and stagehands playing Uno in the wings.

Modeled after the shoebox design of a 17th-century English opera house, Shaftman Performance Hall ensconces its attendees in antiquated elegance. Cherry seats with soft velvet cushions provide posh seating, and various chandeliers challenge each singer's ability to shatter glass with their mind. Audiences can visit Opera Roanoke's website for information on parking and nearby dining.
