Des Moines Metro Opera will present a virtual holiday program, “Merry & Bright Holiday Concert,” Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. The show will feature performances by current and former principal artists, including tenor Jonathan Burton, mezzo-soprano Joyce Castle and tenor Joseph Dennis.

DMMO has partnered with Dore Bakery for a Holiday Cheer Package that includes treats from the kitchen of pastry chef Nik Pugmire, who is featured in our latest issue. You’ll receive gourmet hot chocolate, holiday cookies and custom do-it-yourself cookie decorations that you can use during an interactive cookie tutorial in the reception.

Tickets for the show and reception are $50 per screen. For the additional treats, the Holiday Cheer Package costs $50 (includes enough for two individuals). All tickets can be ordered online or by calling 515-961-6221. The concert will be available for repeat viewing through Dec. 31, so if you are unable to join for the premiere, you can still watch the concert.
