Happy New Year From Opera Orlando!

Happy New Year From Opera Orlando!


Happy New Year From Opera Orlando! What a year it has been! In 2022, Opera Orlando presented the first opera ever in Steinmetz Hall with Rigoletto, we had the largest audience ever for a single production with The Magic Flute, and we took All is Calm: the Christmas Truce of 1914 on tour throughout Central Florida for the first time.


The best is yet to come in 2023
