Wyoming Triumph Ski & Snowboard Film

Sun Valley Opera House

Wyoming Triumph Ski & Snowboard Film

Wednesday, December 7th,  7:30pm

Two years ago we set out on a mission to scout the vast and mostly unskied terrain of our home state, Wyoming. Towns and mountains where more people own an elk rifle than a pair of skis. Following countless broken bones, close calls and getting lost we returned home with a story.


Tickets $10 – Available at Chapter One Bookstore and at the Opera House Door

Sun Valley Opera’s Winter Concert

Sun Valley Opera House

Love Is In The Air

Starring soprano Michelle Johnson and baritone Brian Major

February 10, 2012


Diva party to precede concert in the Sun Valley Lodge Dining Room 6:30pm

Audiences will be entertained by the critically acclaimed rising opera star, Michelle Johnson, winner of the Metropolitan Opera’s National Council Auditions, singing with fianc Brian Major in the Sun Valley Opera’s winter concert. They will entertain the audience with a concert of love songs perfect for Valentine’s Day.  Inquirer music critic David Patrick Stearns has said of Johnson " On a good night, Opera soprano Michelle Johnson is the bullfighter and the audience is the bull-there to be teased, attracted, provoked and (pleasurably) slain. Johnson could make you believe that opera singers are born rather than made, shepherded to fame by the forces of destiny, and with luck, kept from vocal harm by extra-militant guardian angels."


General admission tickets are $40 and Diva tickets begin at $125. Tickets are available by calling 208.726.0991 or online at www.sunvalleyopera.com.
