Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe your savage insides with today's Groupon: for $86, you get a 2010–2011 season ticket to Knoxville Opera (up to a $213 value).

Knoxville Opera's 2010–2011 schedule comprises three productions, with each offering a multitude of show dates from which to choose. The season kicks off with a production of Puccini's seminal Madame Butterfly, featuring rising Korean star Jin-Won Park in her stateside debut. Cry along to the timeless tale as you ponder how Puccini somehow traveled through time to borrow the opera's themes and storyline from Weezer's 1996 album Pinkerton. Massenet's Manon follows, with Talise Trevigne starring in the passionate and sensuous opera as an irrepressible, irresistible country girl with Parisian aspirations and a decided lack of foresight. Bellini's I Puritani rounds out the tragic triad, starring the Metropolitan Opera’s Rachele Gilmore in the tale of a scorned bride gone mad, featuring soaring high notes and a full battery of vocal firepower throughout.

English translations for each show are projected above the stage, allowing readers to either follow along or avoid the words entirely and make up their own libretto. Seating will be assigned in the A-level ($213) and B-level sections ($176) of the theater on a first-come, first-served basis. Knoxville Opera performs in the historic Tennessee Theatre. Take a virtual tour to e-scope out your potential seats and let the anticipation begin.

This Groupon is valid for new subscribers only. Not valid for renewals. Knoxville Opera will make every effort to place groups of tickets in adjacent seats when booking.

Knoxville Opera

The Knoxville Opera sings most of its notes in a venue befitting the regality of its material: the Tennessee Theatre. The former movie-house and decades-old stage swathes performers in Spanish-Moorish design, a strikingly blue domed ceiling, burgundy velvet seats, and gold accents. But the opera singers don't keep their voices contained there. Education and outreach programs send them throughout the community, performing at schools, shaking the downtown streets during themed festivals, and aiding local construction companies by shattering old glass buildings.
