The 2020/2021 Season

Opera Carolina has reimagined how we bring you opera during a time when in-person performances are impossible.

We hope you’ll feel engaged and inspired by online performances – much shorter (minutes vs. hours) than a night at the opera but more plentiful, too – and the smaller pop-up performances we have planned at outdoor venues.

Tappin’s

I Dream

April 11, 15 & 17, 2021

A look back at the early days of the Civil Rights Movement that would reshape America and transform a preacher from Atlanta into an icon for the ages. Revised for the 2021 performances, our new version includes new music and a completely revised script to bring to life this remarkable story.

Repertoire from 1948 to Present

Opera Carolina has served the Carolinas for more than 71 years by presenting quality, Grand Opera to the Charlotte community.

PLAN YOUR VISIT

In normal times, Opera Carolina performs in Charlotte's premiere venues: the Belk and Knight Theaters in the heart of center city Charlotte.

The pandemic hasn’t stopped us from performing. It’s just changed our venues. With Opera: Reimagined, you can enjoy top-notch performances from the comfort of your couch.


Public health and the safety of our patrons, staff and artists is our top priority. We will continue to innovate and think creatively about ways to keep you engaged and entertained while also keeping you safe.

This season, we’re bringing opera directly to you.
