Up Next: The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse Postponed New Dates to be Announced 

Based on a true story, The Lighthouse is a haunting opera with an atmospheric score by the lauded English composer Peter Maxwell Davies.  Part detective mystery and part ghost story, The Lighthouse tells the tale of three officers who were sent to relieve three lighthouse keepers, only to find they had vanished into thin air. All performances of The Lighthouse are at the Aquarium’s new cutting-edge, high-definition technology space with a breathtaking 32-foot-tall 180-degree arc projection wall.

Billy The Kid

Billy the Kid May 3, 8, 9, & 10 at Sunnyside Cemetery

Drawing on contemporary accounts, period photographs, dime novels, this visionary opera traces the legendary outlaw's passage across the blasted landscape of 1880 New Mexico and the collective unconscious of his country. 

The Collected Works of Billy the Kid is a virtuoso synthesis of storytelling, history, and myth by a writer and composer who bring us back to our familiar legends with a renewed sense of wonder.

COVID-19 Update

An update regarding Coronavirus


As of today, because the Governor has determined that gatherings of 250 people or more should not take place, we cannot go forward with our performances of The Lighthouse on the planned dates. However, we are working on contingency plans that would allow us to postpone the performances to a later date, and will have more information about that very soon. As you can imagine, this is a rapidly developing situation, and we are working as quickly as we can to find solutions.  We will update the public with information about new dates and ticket exchanges as soon as possible.
