Opera Columbus has announced its most collaborative season to date for the 2017-18 season, showcasing the artists of Juilliard, the Columbus Symphony, Against the Grain Theatre, and Company XIV in a not-to-be-missed trilogy of timeless operatic repertoire presented in what has become Opera Columbus’ signature forward-thinking style.

Opera Columbus continues its artistic collaboration with The Juilliard School’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts and its Artist Diploma in Opera Studies (ADOS) program for a second season, opening with the Opera Columbus debut of two highly gifted ADOS sopranos in a brand new production of Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw.

This will be followed by a concert version of Verdi’s Aida co-presented with the Columbus Symphony, featuring the Columbus Symphony Chorus, exceptional guest vocalists, the trumpet section of The Ohio State University Marching Band, and animals from the Columbus Zoo.

The 2017-18 season will conclude with Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice, showcasing artists from Toronto’s Against the Grain Theatre and NYC’s Company XIV alongside a trio of Opera Columbus guest vocalists in a modern-day and spectacular reimagining of one of the most beautiful operatic scores the world has ever known.
