01.08.18Outstanding Opera in Upstate New York

Imagine sitting in a plush theater seat as the lights go down, the musicians play, and the first exquisite notes of a classical aria reach your ears. As the music washes over you like a warm wave, you close your eyes, feeling as if you’re at the Met. But wait, this isn’t NYC – it’s Binghamton, and the performance is being given by the Tri-Cities Opera. Founded almost 70 years ago as a regional opera company, the Tri-Cities Opera is renowned throughout the opera world for its splendidly-designed sets and costumes, and its professional-quality productions.

Over the years it has become the region’s cultural centerpiece, and continues to maintain its impressive reputation via its Resident Artist Training Program and such seasonal offerings as “Master Class,” a story of famed diva Maria Callas, and “The Tragedy of Carmen.” Additionally, TCO also hosts such events as “Cabaret on Court,” with pianist/composer Jan DeAngelo and the company’s Resident Artists performing an evening of cabaret songs. The upcoming 2018 season promises to be exceptional, so be sure to check out their offerings and make your reservations.
