Message from Cincinnati Opera:

As you may be aware, there was a police incident outside Music Hall on Thursday, June 27, just as our opening night performance of La Traviata (pic) was about to begin.

Police Chief Teresa Theetge offered a public statement that police officers had been in pursuit of a suspect accused of attacking a woman in a neighborhood west of downtown. The chase ended near Music Hall, where the armed suspect was shot by police. The suspect died at the scene.

More information is available here: https://www.wvxu.org/local-news/2024-06-27/police-kill-man-outside-music-hall-after-he-reportedly-pointed-a-gun-at-officers.

We’re grateful to the Cincinnati Police Department (CPD) for their quick response in ensuring the community’s safety. We’re also thankful that no Cincinnati Opera or Music Hall patrons or personnel were involved in the incident.

To those patrons who were unable to enter Music Hall at the beginning of the performance, we would like to offer you tickets to one of our two remaining performances of La Traviata (tonight and Sunday). If you haven’t already, please contact the Box Office at 513-241-2742.

And to those patrons who were affected by the delayed departure from Music Hall at the conclusion of the performance, we offer our sincere gratitude for your extraordinary patience and flexibility.

Some operagoers repport hearing the gunfire and feeling trapped and confused.
