Message from Our General Director

Message from NCO General Director Eric Mitchko:

The song recital is the most intimate form of musical performance.  On Sunday, March 3rd, we are delighted to present soprano Leah Crocetto and pianist Mark Markham in what promises to be a beautiful afternoon of exploring some of the gems of this repertoire.  I hope you can join us as the artists perform works by Rachmaninoff, Respighi, and Poulenc, along with favorites from the American Songbook.  There is nothing like the communicative power of a singer and pianist alone on stage.  You won’t want to miss it!

Just a few weeks after that we return to fully-staged, passionate Italian opera, when Puccini’s Tosca makes its return to the NCO stage for the first time since 2010.  Alexandra LoBianco, Scott Quinn, and Malcom MacKenzie (star of last season’s Rigoletto), sing the leads.  David Paul directs, and Joseph Resicgno conducts this always-thrilling opera.

Thank you for your continued support.

Carmen has richly earned its positioin as the world's favorite opera.  This is great first opera for people.  We encourage you to bring a friend!

Thank you.

Eric Mitchko
