About Cincinnati Opera

Founded in 1920 and the second oldest opera company in the U.S., Cincinnati Opera presents a thrilling roster of world-class artists and conductors, important company debuts, stunning sets and costumes, and the spectacular Cincin­nati Symphony Orchestra. Today the c­ompany is hailed as Cincinnati’s “prime summer arts festival” attracting a passionate regional audience as well as opera tourists from throughout the U.S. and Canada.­

The 2016 season marks the 96th Summer Festival and the first of two seasons in our temporary, primary performance home–the Aronoff Center for the Arts–while our beloved Music Hall is restored and enhanced. The Harry T. Wilks Artistic Director Evans Mirageas will begin his eleventh season with the company. Considered one of the most talented and respected artistic leaders in the classical music industry today, Mirageas brings to Cincinnati Opera a broad range of experience in both opera and symphonic music, as well as a long history of successful partnerships­ with many of the world’s leading singers and conductors. In August 2006, Opera News named Mirageas one of the 25 Most Powerful Names in U.S. Opera.­

Our Vision: Cincinnati Opera, known for creating beautiful, magical, and thrilling experiences, is an indispensable part of our community and region. By connecting people and organizations, we produce experiences that everyone loves, and they can’t wait to come back for more.
