Sign of the times at Camden Opera House.
After a year of limited and no-audience shows, the Camden Opera House will hold in-person events in the coming weeks. SoundCheck performances will continue to be livestreamed free on the opera house Facebook page and are archived there and on the opera house YouTube channel.

In a news release, manager Dave Morrison said, “From the beginning of the pandemic, all of our choices have been guided by two things: the Maine CDC and our care and respect for our audience, our staff and our performers. That continues to be the case. As of May 24, the state of Maine says that fully vaccinated persons can remove their face masks indoors, and we will honor that. But we are going to continue to urge you to wear a mask as a show of support and respect for your neighbors’ safety and comfort. Our staff will continue to wear masks.”

When buying tickets via the opera house website, two empty seats will automatically be reserved on either side of the ticket-holding party for comfortable spacing. The reserved-seating system is intended to allow purchasers to choose the seats they want for any show.

Upcoming SoundCheck shows include Anni Clark on June 11; Pete Kilpatrick on June 25; Gintaré on July 9; Mehuman Ernst on July 16; and more, through September.

Folksinger Tom Rush will perform live on September 4, and the Lúnasa Irish Christmas show will return on December 18.
