Opera in the Heights is resuming live performances with a pair of outdoor concerts at White Oak Music Hall this weekend.

"We found that our audience and our performers generally want the same thing: safe, in-person music-making," artistic director Eiki Isomura said in a news release. "While we are extremely proud of our venture into digital content earlier this season, we look forward to returning to live performances this spring in a safe outdoor setting."


Using the outdoor concert setup on White Oak Music Hall's lawn, the performances will allow patrons to purchase a "grid," a block of six seats, which can be shared with family and friends. Each grid is physically separated from others on the lawn to ensure social distancing.

The performances feature highlights of "Lucia" and "Figaro," including the famous "Lucia" sextet and "mad scene," as well as the finales to second and fourth acts of "Figaro."

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. April 24 and 4 p.m. April 26. Grid ticket prices are $125-$300 and can be purchased online.
