“In accordance with state and city public health guidelines, all large-scale public events are closed through April 10, 2020. As a result, Don Giovanni performances scheduled for March 20 – 22 at the Toby Theater ​have been canceled.”

“We hope patrons will consider donating the cost of tickets back to the Indianapolis Opera. This helps support us, as an arts nonprofit, during this challenging time as we navigate the significant, ongoing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, including assisting in covering costs already incurred for the production. ”

The following options are available for those who have already purchased tickets to Don Giovanni:

Exchange your tickets for any future 2019-20 or 2020-21 season performance. All exchange fees will be waived in this situation.

​Donate your tickets, and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value.

All requests for ticket donations or exchanges must be received by April 22, 2020.
