Opera Wilmington The mission of this organization is to provide excellence in operatic performance and education, and Opera Wilmington brings together two distinct local groups: those who love to perform opera and those who love to support it, to enhance awareness of this unique art form.

Our artistic team, fresh from a rousingly successful production of Mozart's The Magic Flute, is at work creating our 2023 production of La Traviata, Verdi's masterpiece of love and loss.

The story of a good-hearted but ill-fated courtesan is based on the younger Alexandre Dumas' novel, The Lady of the Camellias.

Our 2022-23 season will feature some camellia-themed events, complete with a big fundraiser this winter!

Stay tuned and like, follow, and share to stay updated on our upcoming events!

A Night in Italy was fabulous - definitely the best of all your dinner events! We are so fortunate to have such amazing talent in Wilmington and to have your group making live Opera available in so many delightful ways. I can hardly wait for February! ❤️🎶🍝🍷❤️
I would like to introduce my Opera Wilmington friends to my friend, Gregory Schreiner. He and I met at Millikin University when I went there as a freshman and fortunately we have kept in touch. Greg has a traveling show called Hollywood Revisited. He owns sooooo many authentic costumes and specializes in Marilyn Monroe memorabilia. I would like to see Greg bring his show to Wilmington and would appreciate help from those of you able to assist. www.hollywoodrevisited.com. Thanks
We are still smiling because of the wonderful opening night of Carmen! Great job everyone! So nice to see many of our friends come to the opera! Bravo-cast and crew! Enjoy today's matinee! We will be back next week for the final show! UNCW and Wilmington are so blessed to have such talent !! BRAVO
If anyone has tickets to sell, I need 2 for any performance!
