In the 2015-16, we are proud to announce that Opera Columbus will again present an all locally produced season!
We kick off the season in September with Jean-Baptiste Lully's Armide, performed with BalletMet 2 and the Apollo's Fire Orchestra. Opera Columbus has never before performed this work, and we are thrilled to bring you this heart-wrenching tale of love and war set during the First Crusade.
Then in March 2016, we explore love among the penniless inhabitants of the rooftops of bohemian Paris in Puccini's most popular opera, La Bohème. It will be performed in Italian with the Columbus Symphony.
In June of 2016, Opera Columbus will present a collaboration with The Ohio State University School of Music and Department of Theatre with Verdi's La Traviata. Again performed with the Columbus Symphony, you will delight in this twisted tale of a much-sought-after Parisian courtesan.
La Traviata will also be our Opera on the Edge production for the 2015-16 season, as we will present the work as an hour-long, abridged version sung in English at Shadowbox Live's Backstage Bistro.
