Opera Wilmington is thrilled to announce a series of three summer concerts, under the stars and (mostly) outside!

The easing of Covid restrictions will allow us to bring you the performers and music you love the most, led by our music director and principal conductor, Daniel Brier, with the Opera Wilmington Orchestra.

We know you miss the opera, and we hope our summer series is a small step toward making and enjoying music together, safely.

Featuring Opera Wilmington favorite singers and Magic Flute cast members (which we’ve postponed to July 2022), produced in beautiful venues across Wilmington.
