Tradition to Innovation: Opera’s Changing Landscape

Philip Cali joins us as we discuss the constant evolution of the opera world and how original source material is adapted for opera and musical theatre


Breaking Up

Monday, July 31st 2017, 12:00 noon – 1:00

The relationships between lovers are often difficult, fractured, or comedic in opera. All of which are prevalent in TCO’s upcoming season.


Military Conflict

TCO Board President Michael Bogdasarian gives us an inside look to Military Conflict and how it coincides with Opera. While Glory Denied is set around the Vietnam War, military conflict is no stranger to opera, and is often illuminated through social norms and interactions.
