Following Mayor Bynum’s announcements this past weekend concerning the efforts of the CDC and the State of Oklahoma to limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and the directives toward the City of Tulsa public facilities, Tulsa Opera General Director Ken McConnell and Artistic Director Tobias Picker today announced with regret the postponement of the company’s new production of Mr. Picker’s Emmeline, which had been scheduled for Friday, May 1 and Sunday, May 3, 2020. Originally planned as the 2019–20 season finale, this production will be rescheduled for the 2021­–22 season.

Ticketholders may:

  • Retain their tickets for the rescheduled performance in 2021–22. Information will be forthcoming.
  • Donate the ticket value to Tulsa Opera’s annual fund. Such donations are tax deductible and ensure the financial strength of Tulsa Opera. Donors will receive four free vouchers to select Tulsa Opera productions in the coming year and are encouraged to share these vouchers with friends and neighbors.
  • Exchange their purchase for tickets at any production in the 2020–21 season. Information about the upcoming season, which begins with performances on October 9 and 11, is available here. The ticket value may also be applied to a subscription next season.
  • Request a refund.
