Camden Opera House Welcomes Audiences Again
CAMDEN – After a year of limited, audience-less performances, Camden Opera is ready to welcome audiences once again for a safe and busy season of arts and entertainment. And while members of the public are allowed to remove the masks, the Opera is hoping they won’t.
“Since the start of the pandemic, all of our choices have been guided by two things: the Maine CDC; and our care and respect for our audience, our staff and our artists, ”said director Dave Morrison.
“It continues to be the case. As of May 24, the state of Maine has said that fully vaccinated people can remove their face masks indoors, and we will honor that. But we will continue to urge you to wear a mask as a sign of support and respect for the safety and comfort of your neighbors. Our staff will continue to wear masks. ”
The Opera is also implementing a new ticketing function: when purchasing tickets via the Opera website, two empty seats will be automatically reserved on either side of the ticket office, for comfortable spacing. This reserved seating feature allows people to choose the seats they want for any show.
As always, SoundCheck’s performances are streamed live for free on COH’s Facebook page, and are archived there and on COH’s YouTube channel. Upcoming SoundCheck shows include Anni Clark, June 11; Pete Kilpatrick, June 25; Gintaré, July 9; Mehuman Ernst, July 16; and more, until September.
In addition to SoundCheck, legendary folk singer Tom Rush will perform at the opera on Saturday September 4th; and Lúnasa’s beloved Irish Christmas show will return on December 18. For more information and tickets visit camdenoperahouse.com.
