Message from Our General Director

Message from NCO General Director Eric Mitchko:

Is The Marriage of Figaro the best opera ever composed? Opera fans disagree about the question, but it's undoubtedly one of the warmest, most beautiful, and sophisticated comedies ever to see the stage.  We can't wait to present it for you, in a new production with a fantastic cast of young singers.  The intimacy of Mozart and Da Ponte works best in Fletcher Opera Theater, and we have five performances to choose from.

Soon afterwards, international star tenor Michael Fabiano appears in recital on March 29th, and we close the season in April 2017 with the first NCO performances of Bizet's beautiful The Pearl Fishers.  

Thank you for being a part of this great season!

Eric Mitchko
