As creators and communicators of stories from diverse perspectives and traditions, the artists, staff, and Board of Directors of Opera Carolina believe in the power of our artform to shape a world free from racism, bigotry, and exclusion.  We acknowledge that many of opera’s inherited practices and its structures have created barriers that include but are not limited to race, socio-economic status, age, and religion.
We envision a future that affirms and uplifts the black community so that all may be uplifted and we recognize that this is hard work. The staff and Board are committed to continually building personal and organizational awareness of, resources for, and skills required to ensure Opera Carolina is inclusive and equitable in our operation and engagements both on and off the stage.
Our Guarantee to You.
The Opera Carolina team continues to monitor government guidelines to ensure the health and safety of Opera patrons throughout the 2020/2021 season. For our performances and events through December 2020, should you feel it is unsafe to attend a performance for which you have purchased a ticket, we gladly provide you with these options:
  1. Exchange your Opera tickets for another performance (good through May 2021).
  2. Make a tax-deductible donation to the Opera and receive full face value of your tickets (available for season and single tickets).
  3. Receive a credit for a future performance (excluding Performing Arts Center Fees and taxes – Good through May 2021).
We all are confident that we will meet this current challenge, as our society has met so many challenges in the past.

The Season of Action

Music uplifts us when times are good, and it inspires us in times of adversity. Opera Carolina has planned a season long on action and drama. A season filled with characters whose choices propel their stories forward – toward sometimes tragic and sometimes uplifting ends.

Let the action begin.


Opera Carolina performs in Charlotte's premiere venues: the Belk and Knight Theaters, each located in the heart of Center City Charlotte. Center City offers great options for dining, lodging and parking – all within walking distance to the theater
