Couples renew wedding vows at the opera

Local News

The Knoxville Opera is offering married couples the opportunity to renew their wedding vows in the historic Tennessee Theatre.

Couples attending either Friday night’s or Sunday’s performance of “Lucia di Lammermoor” were able to renew their vows on stage. 

One couple that was part of the special night of love shared a special connection to the theatre. 

“Five years ago Valentine’s Day we got married here at the intermission of the opera, ‘Elixir of Love,'” said Lisa and Billy Dyke. “So this was a great chance for us to come back to the theatre. It was really neat to re-live that whole experience.” 

There’s still a chance to renew your wedding vows for couples who wish to participate – contact Beth Evans via email at to register in advance.
