Upcoming events include:
Shameless, June 30: The opera house will host Shameless, the Midwest’s premier Garth Brooks tribute act, on Thursday, June 30th. This one-night-only show is made up of some of Omaha's finest musicians. Those attending will hear popular Garth Brooks songs such as “Much Too Young (To Feel This Old),” “Rodeo,” “That Summer” and many more. Tickets are $40.
The Everly Brothers Experience, July 9: Catch this tribute performance by The Zmed Brothers on July 9. The Zmed Brothers are an Americana blood harmony duo. Zachary and Dylan Zmed perform original songs, hits by famous sibling acts from the 30s to 60s, and cross genre classics from the birth of Rock n' Roll in two- part harmony style. Tickets are $35.
"Since 2015, we have been paying our homage to the career and influence of the greatest sibling Rock duo of all time, The Everly Brothers,” said Zach and Dylan Zmed. “As brothers ourselves, it's been an enormous educational experience. As musicians and performers, being able to celebrate the birth of Rock N' Roll with folks who love it as much as we do is an absolute dream come true.”
Continuing in that spirit, Zach and Dylan are now further celebrating the rich tradition of family singing together in American music, first through their 2020 online video series called, "The Zmed Brothers Show," and now in their duo live show.
