Musings on opera in NC and beyond

Yeah! A Blog for Opera!

with 6 comments

Surprise!!! You’ve now been redirected!! Want to know why? Two main reasons. First, OCNC’s website was outdated and tangled in an old online presence. Second, so much going on, so little time–a blog is the best way to start communicating!

So now that you’re officially here, let me welcome you to NCOpera–a blog for North Carolina Opera and opera in the Triangle and beyond. Watch this space for behind-the-lens/up-to-the-minute news, commentary and all-round musings on opera from programs and events to anything else that seems to fit. Check back regularly for new content!

  2. Great new site! I’ve heard that you’re doing 3 operas next season–two Italian and one French. But no Handel. WHEN we will get some Handel here in the Triangle? I’m also hoping that you will do performances in Chapel Hill as well as Durham’s new performing arts center. Best of luck!

    • Thanks, David! Vis a vis the new season, I met with the acting director of OCNC this week. He says that the 2010/11 season lineups will be announced at the Opera Ball on Jan 30. So I guess it’s stay tuned until Jan 31 when I’ll post what I find out at the Ball. As for Handel, well, great Handelfest oppty missed last year (GFH’s 250th anniversary)! Listening to a Handel opera isn’t nearly as good as having it on stage–works so much better–let’s see what the season will look like later this month.

  3. Will you be holding open auditions for next season?

    • From Tim Myers, our artistic director and principal conductor: “…About once per year we hold “house auditions,” where I set aside a day to hear singers from the region. We do pre-screen materials before inviting an artist for an audition, but I try to hear as many people as possible. Interested parties should submit a resume to and we will contact them the next time we hold auditions, which will probably be end of April/beginning of May 2010.”
