Cincinnati Celebrates National Opera Week

October 28-November 3
CINCINNATI (OH)-- Five Cincinnati opera companies will join opera organizations nationwide to celebrate National Opera Week, coordinated by OPERA America, the national service organization for opera, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Cincinnati Opera, now in its 94th year, will collaborate with nascent companies Cincinnati Chamber Opera, NANOWorks Opera, Queen City Chamber Opera, and ROKCincy to present a range of programming in the Greater Cincinnati area.
National Opera Week celebrates the vibrancy of opera in America today, and brings the inventiveness and excitement of opera to a national audience. The strength and diversity of established opera companies, community opera ensembles, and opera training programs across the United States will be shared through free, dynamic activities designed to engage novices, opera lovers, and everyone in between.
