For six seasons, Opera Roanoke has offered FREE tickets to students through the innovative Sempre Libera program, among the first of its kind. Italian for “always free,”Sempre Libera allows students of all ages the opportunity to experience an art form that encompasses high drama, thrilling music, sly humor, and extravagant costumes. Sempre Libera tickets are available for Opera Roanoke productions at Jefferson Center only. Tickets are not transferable to other Opera Roanoke or Jefferson Center offerings. A limited number of Sempre Libera tickets are available. Sempre Libera tickets are available only with a valid student I.D. Students must present student I.D. to receive a ticket. Only one ticket per valid student I.D. will be issued. Tickets can be obtained at the Jefferson Center box office.
