Our Main Stage offering last year was Rossini’s “II Barbiere di Siviglia.” Famous for the Figaro aria (thanks to Bugs Bunny), this hilarious romp takes on some new flavors! It has to be seen to be believed. The Opera featured an all-star national cast along with returning local Soprano Madison Leonard as the beguiling Rosina!

You may remember our amazing Mephisto from Faust in 2011. Jamie Offenbach as Basilio and returning to Opera CDA after his star turn as Alcindoro/Benoit in our sellout production of La Boheme for two seasons ago – Kevin Glavin portrayed the blustering Bartolo and rounding out the cast was Andrew Wilkowske as the wiley and charming Barber, Figaro.

All productions for the season were directed by Aaron St. Clair Nicholson. Opera Coeur d’Alene’s Artistic Director, he is himself a regular Metropolitan Opera artist who sang his debut there under the direction of famed tenor Plácido Domingo.

Last year’s cruise on beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene featured Johann Strauss’s most famous Operetta “Die Fledermaus.” Opera goers enjoyed an evening of wine, opera, and food, during a beautiful Lake CDA lake cruise. The cast included local favorites, Jadd Davis, Tess Altiveros, Christina Kowalski and Opera CDA Artistic Director, Aaron St. Clair Nicholson.

Taking live opera to regional elementary schools every year, Opera Coeur d’Alene’s “Opera-tunities” program was designed to instill in young school children an early appreciation of opera. Last year, Opera CDA performed a family friendly, FREE CONCERT PERFORMANCE of Little Red Riding Hood to the public on Sunday, May 15, 2016. Over the course of the next two weeks, “Opera-tunities” had 21 performances in 19 schools across the Inland Northwest

Last year’s attendees of our Gala Event enjoyed, a beautiful three-course dinner, complete with wine, anti-pasta dishes, scrumptious Italian fare and a flourless chocolate ganache dessert, all catered by ANGELOS!

Afterwards, we sat back and enjoyed outstanding arias performed by world renowned opera singers, and bid on a number incredible live auction packages! It is Opera CDA’s main fundraising event, and we love the support you’ve shown us – a special thanks to all who were in attendance.
