Purchase with Confidence Program

One of the most important ways we can serve our community is to sometimes just be there. It may seem simple, but it is important to have familiar things you can count on, especially in times of great uncertainty. We’ve been in this community for over 55 years, and we have no plans to go anywhere. If you purchase tickets to a San Diego Opera performance and are unable to attend because you are not feeling well or do not feel safe, we will work with you to discuss options such as exchanging your ticket for a different performance or holding the value of your purchase to use for a future event. In these unprecedented times your support will enable us to continue to present opera to our city. We hope to see you soon.

AGING MAGICIAN
West Coast Premiere

IMPORTANT NOTICE
All performances of AGING MAGICIAN have been cancelled.

The production of AGING MAGICIAN was cancelled due to concerns over possible travel restrictions for the 25+ youth choral performers from Brooklyn, NY. San Diego Opera fully intended to present all scheduled performances with the theater rented, contracted labor on hand, and the creative crew in San Diego.

“San Diego Opera is closely following the national conversation about the spread of the novel coronavirus. We are saddened our community did not get to experience this important work, but understand the decision of the artists and their families in these uncertain times,” shares San Diego Opera General Director, David Bennett.

San Diego Opera remains open for business and has two more operas remaining this season with The Barber of Seville (April/May) and The Falling and the Rising (May).

With the evolving nature of the situation, San Diego Opera continues to follow guidelines from government agencies and our public health partners, including the County’s website which is updated daily.

AGING MAGICIAN ticket holders will be contacted directly by the Company. If you have any questions, please call Patron Services at (619) 533-7000.



An eccentric and aging clockmaker is nearing the end of his life and preparing a book of secrets to pass on. AGING MAGICIAN is a delicate and imaginative work that is a huanting exploration of time, youth, and the peculiar magic of ordinary life. It is a gorgeous and moving "painstakingly-crafeted univers that is as immersive for the audience as it is for the performers."

AGING MAGICIAN is a hauntingly beautiful hybrid of opera and theatre. With a dazzling, transforming set, mystical music, a tour-de-force performance by Rinde Eckert, and the acclaimed Brooklyn Youth Chorus, AGING MAGICIAN is an exciting and mesmerizing examination of the arc of life produced by one of today’s most influential and innovative taste makers, Beth Morrison Projects.

The approximate run time is 1 hour and 25 minutes with no intermission.
