2022 Season: Worlds Connect
This summer, the Lakes Area Music Festival presents WORLDS CONNECT: music that manifests the exhilaration, friction, and beauty of connection. From Richard Strauss’ comedic opera- within-an-opera, Ariadne auf Naxos, to the explosive passion of Mahler, Shostakovich, and Haydn, this season is filled with dramatic impact.
For three weeks, the festival will be a point of connection, where 180 of the world’s top artists will enter the community of Brainerd, Minnesota. That junction offers a chance for rich exchange, both inside the Gichi-ziibi Center for the Arts and in our wider world. Join us in Brainerd July 29 thorugh August 21!
