Wolf Trap Opera’s mainstage season featured new productions of Mozart’s Idomeneo, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette (both at The Barns at Wolf Trap) and a new Filene Center production of Verdi’s Rigoletto.

Two additional productions were part of the WTO’s UNTRAPPED initiative: Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins (part of the Halcyon By The People Festival) and Hanlon’s Listen, Wilhelmina! (at the Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods at Wolf Trap National Park.)


The Summer 2019 season will be programmed and announced after Wolf Trap Opera’s annual nationwide audition tour in fall 2018. Repertoire will be chosen to best showcase the talents of the artists chosen during those auditions, and the 2019 season will be announced in January.
