This presentation of The Puppy Episode will be in-person only in Warner Concert Hall.

The Puppy Episode, directed by Chris Mirto, composed by Matthew Recio with libretto by Royce Vavrek, will be presented in two performances Wednesday and Thursday, February 16 and 17, in Warner Concert Hall. Each performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

The cast of six singers will be complemented by an eight-member ensemble directed by Assistant Professor of Conducting Tiffany Chang ’09.

Actually a two-part episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ eponymous sitcom that aired in spring 1997, “The Puppy Episode” marked—in hilarious fashion—the long-rumored coming out of the program’s central character as well as the comedian who portrayed her.

Admission to Oberlin Opera Theater's production of The Puppy Episode is free. Reservations are required and can be made through Oberin's Central Ticketing Service website.

This production is presented in collaboration with Opera Columbus.


Conservatory visitors are asked to enter the complex through either Bibbins Hall’s east entrance (off College Place, across from the Oberlin College Bookstore) or the Conservatory Lounge’s west entrance (off S. Professor St., adjacent to the Conservatory Pond). All other entrances will be closed to the public.

Oberlin recommends attendance for vaccinated people. Everyone is required to wear a mask indoors at all times. Anyone with symptoms should refrain from attending campus events. Oberlin policies are subject to change based on evolving public health recommendations.
