In keeping with Maryland Opera’s commitment to the health and safety of our patrons, we will be postponing our season finale production, “Bravissimo Bel Canto,” due to the threat that coronavirus (COVID-19) presents to our audience and performers.

Bravissimo Bel Canto was previously scheduled to be performed at 3 p.m. on April 26, 2020 at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation and featured glorious selections of Italian operas including Norma, Lucia di Lammermoor and I Puritani. This inspiring program will be rescheduled, which we will communicate here, as well as to our email list and via our Facebook page. (Not sure if you’re on our email list? Contact and we’ll be happy to add you!)

In the meantime, click below to see video from our past performances and our opera education outreach programs.

Please check back here for updates as we will soon be announcing next season’s exceptional line-up of artists and programming, all led by Maryland Opera’s famed Artistic Director James Harp!
