Mark Adamo’s Little Women, 2011 Opera in the Ozarks


Opera at Inspiration Point will come alive again this summer as Opera in the Ozarks begins its 62nd season.

This year’s repertoire includes Puccini’s La Boheme, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and A Little Night Music by Sondheim.

The four-week season features 25 performances, beginning June 22 and running through July 20.

The outdoor venue of Inspiration Point (located on Hwy. 62 West, 5 miles west of Eureka Springs) lends itself to an intimate look at each of these acclaimed operas. Tickets range from $20-$25 and may be purchased online at opera.org or by calling 479-253-8595.

As in the past, Opera in the Ozarks will also stage three Sunday performances in the Arend Arts Center in Bentonville.
