From reconfigured army barracks to a stage rivalling that of the Met, the IU Opera Theater has grown into a world-class training ground for opera's next generation. In 2008 the program marks its 60th anniversary with the reprise of the first opera it staged in 1948The Tales of Hoffman. A lavishly illustrated history,Opera for All Seasonscaptures the excitement, hard work, talent, and pride that distinguish each performance and that make IU Opera Theater what it is today. More than 300 photos and drawings illustrate six decades of opera production from the inaugural Offenbach, a legendaryParsifal, and a performance of Martinu'sGreek Passionat the Met, to the 2008 mounting of Puccini'sLa Bohèmethe first opera streamed live on the internet from Indiana University to a worldwide audience.
