About the Cincinnati Opera Chorus
The Cincinnati Opera Chorus is a paid, professional chorus under the jurisdiction of AGMA, the American Guild of Musical Artists. An artist must be a member in good standing or have begun the application for membership prior to employment. Rehearsals for the 2012 Summer Festival will begin in mid-May (exact start dates TBD) and run through late July.
The 2012 Summer Festival, which will take place June 14 through July 28, 2012, opens with a double bill of Italian one-act operas, pairing the tragedy of Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci with the comedic charm of Giacomo Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi. Next, Cincinnati Opera proudly presents its first-ever production of the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess. The season will close with a lavish presentation of Giuseppe Verdi’s heartbreaking romance La Traviata. All performances will take place at historic Music Hall and feature the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
