Welcome

2022 FAMILY OPERA

AUDITION FOR OUR 2022 OPERA Production/Scenes!

 

NCFO is hoping to sing together once again!
We are contemplating a late spring production, which would likely either be
one of our simpler, shorter operas, or selected scenes from NCFO's repertoire.

We believe we can provide a safe environment for rehearsals and potential performances.
COVID precautions will include mandatory vaccinations, masked and distanced rehearsals,
with HEPA filtration, and vaccinated, masked, and distanced audiences.

Many of you were really excited about Cutlass Crew, as were we. We are
still committed to producing this work, and when we do, it will be a GREAT show.
But with uncertainty about venue availability and cast size (Cutlass Crew requires
a large cast), it would be a challenging production even with the best COVID precautions.
What we ultimately decide to produce this year will depend on many circumstances, and
we will keep participants apprised as our decision process evolves.

Our Mission

Our Mission: We provide children and adults the experience of telling stories through song, by performing original, entirely-sung operas and oratorios, with lyrics and music accessible and appealing to audiences of all ages. Below is a 3-minute introduction to what makes NCFO unique! (For more detail, here's a 12-minute version.)

New Works

We are always interested in hearing about new operas or entirely-sung musicals which might be suitable for our group. Please click here for more details of what we are looking for in the way of a "family opera."
