AT THE HISTORIC

 

La fille du régiment is the charming story of Marie, a young vivandière (or water girl) to the 21st French Regiment who saved her in wartime Europe and raised her as their own. When Marie meets a young local boy named Tonio, her many, many father figures get protective and all kinds of hilarity ensues!

The opera will be presented semi-staged with English Supertitles.

CAST: KEELY FUTTERER, NICHOLAS HUFF, DORIAN MCCALL, AND KATHERINE DALIN.

DIRECTED BY GREG ELDRIDGE, CONDUCTED BY KSENIA LELETKINA.

AUGUST 6TH AND 7TH  ONLY!

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

BY GREGORY BERG 

 

AT                         

  Birds of a Feather is a family-friendly children's opera based on the characters from Mozart's The Magic Flute with a message of accepting people for who they are. In this short, English language opera by beloved local artist and radio host, Greg Berg, the couple who sang a whole duet about having lots of kids struggles to actually parent when they and their kids have different ideas about what they should be getting up to... There will be Kona Ice, a book sale, and a LOT of fun for you and your family!

  • KOF AT 

Join us at Rustic Road Brewery downtown this summer for a Kenosha-made cold one and an adult-swim program of music performed by our visiting artists and fellows! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you might need to pee more than usual... But that won't be a problem in Rustic Road's beautiful loft. We hope to see you there!

FOUR GREAT EVENTS TO CHOOSE FROM!

Don't forget there's more to the Festival than the Mainstage! You won't want to miss out on all the summer fun of our Recital Series where you can hear the mainstage principals perform more repertoire, catch some opera in a brewery, and hear the up-and-coming talent in Wisconsin! Check out our titles just below!

  • GUEST ARTIST SHOWCASE

KOF brings in world-class singers for roles in our mainstage opera, but you have a chance to hear them more than once, and before they premiere in La fille du regiment! Our artists present a program that shows them off just for audiences of KOF, so don't miss out on this one!
