About the event
Opera Wyoming audience members will experience a frightening and emotional season
opener this Halloween with Gian Carlo Menotti's The Medium + A Séance with Byron Grey.
Written by Menotti after a true life experience, The Medium is a two-act dramatic
opera that enjoyed a successful Broadway run of over 200 shows in 1947.
According to director, Daniel Quintana, “The presence of ghosts and events that cannot be
explained have long been experienced by humanity since the beginning of time. Almost
everyone has such a story, and while these encounters can be frightening, the themes and
events surrounding The Medium can be downright terrifying.” Therefore, Opera Wyoming felt
it necessary to display a “WARNING” for this show. It contains potentially distressing material;
abuse, homicide, gun violence and alcoholism, as well as scenes portraying communication
with the deceased. Care must be taken when considering the purchase of tickets for children
under the age of 13.
A Séance with Byron Grey is the culmination of many years in magic and dabbling in certain
“closed circles.” Therefore, we have chosen to closely guard the secrets of this second
performance of the evening. The setting will be intimate as the performance lends itself to a
bigger theme than the spirits we may make contact with.
The Medium + A Séance with Byron Grey opens Thursday, October 31 at 7:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, November 1-2 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, November 3 at 2 p.m.
