After a successful debut season that included rave reviews and sold-out productions of “La Bohème” and “The Tender Land,” Vashon Opera Company has announced its much-anticipated second season.

The opera company, led by Island soprano Jennifer Krikawa, will present Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, at Vashon High School Theater. The opera will have a discounted dress rehearsal performance at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 8.

Tickets to regular performances can be purchased now at Tickets cost $32 if purchased singularly, or $28 if purchased in combination with Vashon Opera’s spring production of Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly,” which will have performances at 8 p.m. Friday, May 13 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 15, at Bethel Church. Krikawa will sing the title role in that opera.
