ONE Night only, December 6, from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. at KANEKO, will feature a presentation of the festival’s vision by ONE Festival Artistic Director, James Darrah, as well as opportunities for community engagement and involvement in support of the spring endeavor.
“Opera is for everyone, and we’re excited to kickoff ONE Festival planning with ONE Night Only,” said Opera Omaha General Director Roger Weitz. “ONE Festival, is a sweeping, community-wide artistic endeavor, an experience that will be a transformational and fascinating exploration of the arts.”
“We are beyond fortunate to have Roger and James’ vision driving ONE Festival,” said David G.
