June 25th & June 26th, 2022

January 2022 RIGOLETTO POSTPONED to June 2022

As we are all too familiar with the news, Covid-19 and Omicron cases in New York State and nationwide have been rising. Numerous Broadway shows including Broadway Tours in Buffalo have canceled performances due to Covid-19 cases within the cast and crews. Airlines have canceled thousands of flights due to staffing shortages and forced cancellations. The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has postponed ‘The Magic Flute’; half of our Opera Marathon! Weekend due to concerns among the musicians with unmasked opera singers. Ensuring cast, musicians and crew arrive safely and timely in these uncertain travel times, to a potential positive Covid test that would immediately shut the production down, is a sobering potential outcome in these unprecedented times. As these issues present extreme uncertainty ahead plus increased challenges from the pandemic and many factors outside of our control, we are postponing our January 22nd and January 23rd, 2022 production of Rigoletto to summer performances Saturday, June 25th at 7:00pm and Sunday, June 26th at 4pm at Nichols Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts, 1250 Amherst St, Buffalo. We are reaching out to everyone who purchased tickets which can be exchanged for the June performances, donated or fully refunded. Exchanges, refunds and tickets for the June 25th & 26th performances are also available at the BPO Box Office, 3 Symphony Circle, 716-885-5000.
