Presenting Met tenor Lawrence Brownlee!
Brownlee, a winner of the 2021 Opera News awards and renowned for his bel canto voice, will take the stage at Kenan Auditorium Saturday, Sept. 18.
“Anyone inclined to discount the ability of a single voice to change the world has likely never heard Lawrence Brownlee sing,” is what Opera News has to say about him.
The concert is a collaboration between Opera Wilmington and UNCW Presents. Concert details can be found here.
Tickets go on sale online August 5. The Kenan Auditorium Box Office opens August 16 and will offer ticket sales by phone or in person.

Fun With Opera.
Know a middle- or high-schooler who loves to sing and act? Opera Wilmington’s Opera Camp resumes in June 2021 after taking a hiatus – sadly – this summer. Check out pictures of past camps and the children’s choruses for La Bohème and Hansel and Gretel, our most recent productions.
Test Your Knowledge.
In May, we previewed our monthly Buffa Opera Quiz, which offers up quick and sometimes silly tests of opera trivia. What opera heroine danced herself to death? Which opera titles make the best anagrams? Which opera hero is condemned to perpetual confinement (and no, not during the COVID pandemic)? See how much you know, or can guess!
See What You Missed!
