About the Event

A letter from Opera Santa Barbara regarding the upcoming Romeo & Juliet performances:

Thank you for your interest in Opera SB’s Romeo & JulietWe are disappointed to let you know that due to the ongoing public health concerns, this production has been canceled. 

Although the performances are not until May 1 and 3, since all of our productions are built from the ground up here in Santa Barbara, our artists, orchestra, chorus, and production team would have to start rehearsing in early April. Unfortunately, the closures of our rehearsal venues, disruptions in travel, the shelter-in-place mandate by the State of California, and above all our concern for the well-being of our patrons, artists, staff, and everyone in our community have made this impossible.   

During this difficult time one of our priorities is to support our artists, orchestra musicians, and craftspeople who have been hit hard by cancellations locally, regionally, and nationally. For that reason, although we have to cancel the productions, we will be still making payments to all Romeo and Juliet artists and personnel.

If you have already purchased tickets, you may donate the cost to Opera SB, apply them as a credit to a future Opera SB performance, or receive a refund. To make your selection, please click here: SELECT MY TICKET OPTIONS
