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.

Anna, Elvira and Zerlina are the Don’s latest victims who band together to stop his unrepentant abuse of women. Hailed as Mozart’s greatest opera, Don Giovanni is set on the last day in the life of the infamous seducer and murderer, Don Juan. Opera Carolina brings to life Mozart’s Prague masterpiece with an original production featuring creative new sets and costumes.

“The Falling and the Rising is a sublime opera that distills the complexity of our wars into vivid portraits of the women and men who continue to fight them. It is a beautiful work, deep but not heavy, a one-act that packs in a lot.”


The tragic love story of the enslaved Ethiopian Princess Aida and the Egyptian general Radames, who sacrifices his life to preserve his honor, and save the woman he loves.

Repertoire from 1948 to Present

Opera Carolina has served the Carolinas for more than 72 years by presenting quality, Grand Opera to the Charlotte community.

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 expanded our venues.

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.
