Cape Cod Opera to take its final bow:
Dear donors, supporters, members, singers, musicians, colleagues, volunteers and friends of Cape Cod Opera,
We are so grateful for your support of this 2013 Make or Break year and your memberships and donations have ensured that we are fully funded through December 31st, 2013.
We are proud of all of our collective efforts over these past nearly 20 years and wish to celebrate our final three efforts of bringing live opera to Cape Cod with the following.
Viva Verdi Concert - Sunday October 13th at 7:00 pm at the Church of St. Mary of the Harbor in Provincetown. Our program will celebrate the glorious music of Giuseppe Verdi on the 200th anniversary of his birth.
Opera and You! Outreach - Cape Cod Opera remains committed to bringing live opera into the schools across the Cape with excerpts of Rigoletto in late October. Always one of our most rewarding and important functions as an organization.
Monday, December 30th , 7:30 pm at the First United Methodist Church in Chatham. CCO will officially open the Chatham First Night Festival on the night before the night for one last time. We have every intention of rolling out the red carpet and making this final concert a celebration of all efforts past and present and have chosen this venue and this moment to take our final bow as a company and organization.
The decision to do so hopefully honors that initial group of Chatham colleagues and friends who first pulled together An Afternoon at the Opera, which grew and eventually became Cape Cod Concert Opera, which continued to grow under their tireless efforts into Cape Cod Opera Company.
We have much to be proud of and in honor of all efforts past and present as we look to retire this venerable company with the dignity and grace it so deserves.
David McCarty, Producing Artistic Director and the Board of Directors of Cape Cod Opera
The mission of Cape Cod Opera is to enrich the cultural lives of Cape Cod residents and visitors by presenting operatic programs engaging local and regional professional casts, directors and designers, and by bringing live operatic experiences to local schools and community groups.
Cape Cod Opera evolved from a 1994 recital sponsored by Friends of Monomoy Theatre under the name of Afternoon at the Opera. Opera New England of Cape Cod joined in sponsoring the next year's concert, followed by concert productions of Carmen and Die Fledermaus. This collaboration grew into Cape Cod Opera, an independent non-profit organization dedicated to the production of staged opera showcasing professional local and regional talent. Cape Cod Opera's outreach programs take live classical vocal music to Cape schools at no cost. 2001 saw the expansion of these programs to the senior population. The organization is administered by an all volunteer board.
The Cape Cod Opera Chorus
The Cape Cod Opera Chorus was introduced to Cape audiences in August 2000. The chorus, with singers from all parts of Cape Cod, debuted with An Evening of Opera with Sigmund Romberg and have since accompanied principals in Cape Cod Opera productions of La Traviata, Madama Butterfly, Die Fledermaus, I Paglacci/Cavalleria Rusticana, The Mikado, Carmen, Amahl and The Night Visitors, Tosca, Cosi Fan Tutte, The Merry Widow and have sung in most opera concerts. They appeared with Jonathan McPhee's Symphony by the Sea in July 2005 in a concert at The Hatch Shell on the Esplanade in Boston. Members of the Cape Cod Opera Chorus also sing comprimario roles in productions.
