October 13, 15 & 16, 2022

Tosca is a roller coaster story of love, lust, murder, and political intrigue. Tosca is in love with the dissident artist Mario Cavaradossi. The head of the secret police wants to capture Mario and seduce Tosca. With Puccini‘s richly romantic score, Tosca is one of the world’s most beloved operas.

Jan. 22, 24, 26 & 28, 2023

Gershwin’s brilliant work expresses the joys and struggles of a black community in Catfish Row South Carolina in the 1930’s.  The brilliant combination of music, word, and idea among a complex blend of Americana make this a unique and impressive work both within and beyond the operatic repertory.

April 20, 22 & 23, 2023

A wealthy young man falls for a “working girl” with a big heart and offers her a better life. But class differences may keep them apart. Sound familiar? That’s the plot of Pretty Woman and Moulin Rouge. But first, it was the plot of Verdi’s La traviata.

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.
