The Tri-Cities Opera Center

Madness and

The Medium

An Operatic Haunted House

Music and Lyrics by Gian Carlo Menotti and Others

This fall, the Tri-Cities Opera Center at 315 Clinton Street is transforming into a thrilling and immersive haunted opera experience. On the weekend of October 21–23rd, Madness & The Medium will be breaking all of the rules of opera! Murder, mayhem, and madness will ensue as audience members are guided through selected scenes for the opera experience of a lifetime. Tri-Cities Opera is pushing the limits of immersive theater and changing the landscape of opera as you know it. This is sure to be one of Binghamton’s premier Halloween events—grab your ticket’s now!

Menotti’s The Medium is a chilling tale about suffering, violence, and addiction. An alcoholic con-woman, Baba, with the participation of her subjugated daughter Monica and the “adopted” mute orphan youth, Toby, swindle grieving clients by claiming to be the medium, Madame Flora… with terrifying results. We are preparing a fresh take, presenting The Medium paired with several madness and murder scenes from different operas in an operatic haunted house setting. Enter if you dare!
