2017-2018The 2017-2018 season was filled with unforgettable moments and more than a bit of artistic risk. We hope you enjoyed watching it as much as we did creating it.
In March, we unveiled a new logo and slogan: Make It Yours. This new brand boldly states our commitment to make opera that is exciting, accessible, and relevant to everyone, whether you prefer jeans or black tie, love the grand opera classics or edgy modern works. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre very soon.
We accomplished so much this season, but it would be meaningless without you – our subscribers, donors and friends who cheer us on with your applause and your gifts, both of which enable us to transform the arts community in central Ohio and across the world. THANK YOU!
2016-2017Thank you for being one of over 23,000 individuals who supported Opera Columbus as an audience member, program participant, volunteer, or contributor—or all of the above!—in the 2016–2017 season. Whether you attended one of our mainstage productions or a performance of Opera on the Edge, or know a child who participated in our Opera Goes to School education programs, you’ve seen first-hand the results of your incredible support of Opera Columbus: our focus on nurturing young talent and sharing the love of opera throughout central Ohio leads to exceptional performances, rave reviews and standing ovations, and young people’s lives changed through enriching educational programming.Every exquisite moment and note of the 2016–2017 season was made possible by our generous donors, and we are so grateful for your support. Thank you!
2015-2016Thank you for the incredible 2015–2016 season. Your continued support allowed us to produce incredible productions like Armide, sell out three shows of La Bohème and feature CSO Music Director Rossen Milanov’s Opera Columbus debut in La Traviata. Our education and community outreach programs also had a fantastic season, reaching more than 12,000 students through Opera Goes to School and building opera audiences through Opera on the Edge.
We are pleased to share our 2015–2016 Annual report with you, and hope you see how important you are to our success.
2013-20142013–2014 was a landmark season for Opera Columbus, which saw the return of locally produced opera with our standing-room-only production of Madama Butterfly, the second season of the innovative Opera on the Edge program with a new adaptation of The Merry Widow, Carmen in Concert with the Columbus Symphony, and continued growth for our Education & Community programs. We are pleased to share our 2013–2014 Annual Report with you, and we hope you are as proud and excited as we are about Opera Columbus’ remarkable transformation.
