Here at North Carolina opera, patron safety is our priority.  In addition to postponing our 2020-2021 season, we have held socially distanced performances outside with masks required, as well as offered new, free-of-charge online programming to bring the gift of opera to our patrons at home. We are working with the Duke Energy Center to take precautions in order to bring our patrons back for our 2021-2022 season.  For more information on how Duke Energy Center is keeping our venues safe, please click HERE.
