Message from Our General Director

Message from NCO General Director Eric Mitchko:

Thank you! This season just ended was an exciting traversal of a wide range of operatic and other vocal repertoire, from Wagner to Bizet, from Mozart to Duke Ellington.  We are glad you could join us for it.
The 2017/2018 season is going to be great, and I invite you to subscribe to it now.  We begin with Jennifer Higdon and Gene Scheer’s Cold Mountain, the beautiful new American opera that has been seen so far in Santa Fe and Philadelphia.  We are proud to bring this story home to North Carolina, and to partner with Carolina Performing Arts.  Next up is the return after a long absence of Verdi’s passionate and tuneful Rigoletto, and we will conclude our mainstage season with Saint-Saëns’s powerful Samson and Delilah.  You can subscribe right now and get the best seats by clicking here
We have other special projects next season.  These include Daniel Thomas Davis’s song cycle Family Secrets, and a Raleigh presentation of the scenes program from the UNCSA School of Music.  Plus of course our biggest party of the year, the North Carolina Opera Gala, to be held this year on November 4th at The Umstead Hotel & Spa in Cary.
We look forward to another great season with you!

Eric Mitchko
