View Past Productions at Opera Wilmington
In Summer 2014, the company’s sold-out debut production, Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow, garnered rave reviews and an outpouring of community enthusiasm.
This success was followed by acclaimed productions of Verdi’s Rigoletto in Summer 2015 (declared “a triumph” by The Star News)
and Mozart’s Così fan tutte in Summer 2016. Following a preview performance of Così fan tutte, statewide arts journal Classical Voice of North Carolina noted: “Opera Wilmington is making a great contribution to the region in presenting live opera of high artistic quality. It is a testament to the many people supporting this mission – and to the growing, developing Wilmington public – that it is succeeding splendidly.”
Opera Wilmington continued its record of artistic excellence and uncompromising production value with its much-anticipated Summer 2017 production of Bizet’s Carmen, the most beloved masterpiece of the entire operatic repertoire.
