WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
67 years of experience in running a young artist festival with over 3,000 alumni, many of whom are now singing on the best stages in the world. We are the only summer opera festival of its type in the south central states.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Founded in 1950, Opera in the Ozarks has earned the reputation of being a prominent training program for emerging opera professionals; alumni have gone on to sing on the world’s major stages. Dozens of professional artists and musicians come from all across the country to present a month of performances. Audiences are exposed to a vivid repertoire of well-loved operas spotlighting the exceptional voices of tomorrow’s stars, accompanied by an orchestra of gifted musicians under the baton of Artistic Director Thomas Cockrell.
The 2017 season offers 22 performances of fully stage operas: The Marriage of Figaro, Carmen, and Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah. There will also be 11 performances of Jack and the Beanstalk, this year’s children’s opera, and an Opera Scenes program, a Taste of Opera event, and a chamber music program. Locations vary throughout the multi-county region.
