Ohio's best and brightest rising and established local artists bring opera to life in scenes and full productions, with piano and with chamber orchestra. From Mozart to Puccini, Bellini to Gounod, Edwin Penhorwood to William Grant Still, Opera Project Columbus presents operas you know and operas you should know.

OPC hits the road!
OPC performed to a sold-out crowd at the Owens Station Opera House in Marion, Ohio on September 21, 2014. Renovated over the last 10 years by Marion resident Dennis Mattix, the building rang with the sounds of opera for the first time in over a century!
