You've Just Found the Golden Ticket

Share on Nextdoor
Roald Dahl’s beloved book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has survived two movie adaptations with its appeal intact. This is most likely due to Dahl’s ability to create likable characters -- Charlie Buckle and his Grandpa Joe are classic “good people” who appreciate every bit of kindness that comes their way. Will The Golden Ticket, Peter Ash and Donald Sturrock’s operatic version of the story, maintain the tradition? Most likely. Opera Theatre of Saint Louis commissioned the opera as its world premiere for the 2010 season, and OTSL has an international reputation for high-quality, beautiful productions. The Golden Ticket is revealed to all at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 13, at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-961-0644 or, and is then performed five more times in repertory. Tickets are $25 to $117, but with family plan pricing a family of four can attend for less than $100.
