Overview

Overview 1814: The Rock Opera

The world's first—and finest—rock opera about the War of 1812 reimagines early 19-century American history as 1970s-style hard-rock spectacle. The burning of Washington, D.C. and the Battle of Baltimore come to thunderous life in a cycle of original songs performed live by singers, dancers, and a full rock band. Inventive, irreverent, and inspirational, 1814! turns a forgotten war into an unforgettable musical theater experience. $20, $15 mbrs. & stus. Sat 8pm, Sun 8pm. Adv tix sug. This will be loud.

Washington Post writer Steve Vogel, author of Through The Perilous Fight: Six Weeks That Saved The Nation, gives a rollicking introduction to the action of 1814. He will also lead a post-show Q & A with the show’s authors. Comedian Jim Meyers is your not so serious host for the evening.
