Tri-Cities Opera announces changes for 2015-16 season

New season structure offers two shows at TCO’s Clinton Street center

For its 67th season that begins this fall, Tri-Cities Opera is determined to freshen things up a bit — and a few of the changes are starting now.

During a press event Tuesday at the Tri-Cities Opera Center on Clinton Street in Binghamton, Susan S. Ashbaker, the company’s general director, unveiled a new logo and website. But the biggest difference will be how the season is structured and where the performances will take place.

Bookended by what Ashbaker jokingly called “the good barber and the bad barber,” the 2015-16 offerings will begin with Rossini’s classic “The Barber of Seville” on Oct. 23 and 25 and end with the bloody Stephen Sondheim musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” on April 29 and May 1, 2016. Both will be presented at the Forum.
