THIS YEAR’S THEME:

I'LL BE SEEING YOU—A USO-STYLE HOME SHOW

The year is 1942. The USO is touring at home and abroad to raise the spirits of the soldiers and those fighting the good fight back home. For its Twin Cities tour, The Metropolitan Club has been chosen to host a USO Home Show for the hardworking Minnesotans whose manufacturing efforts are essential to victory. You are invited! Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the fabulous songs and entertainment that supported our troops.

 

WHAT IS THE RESIDENT ARTIST CABARET?

Once a year, the Minnesota Opera Resident Artists take the stage to perform a show entirely their own! The proceeds go to support the Resident Artist Program and other artistic and educational programs.

 

WHAT IS THE RESIDENT ARTIST PROGRAM?

One of North America’s premier training programs, the Resident Artist Program offers a full season of employment for talented artists beginning their professional careers.
