Charles Parsons: A Retrospective

Harry T. Wilks Artistic Director Evans Mirageas calls Charles Parsons a “lifelong ambassador to the Opera.” Parsons began attending Cincinnati Opera productions in 1952, when the company was called Cincinnati Summer Opera and performed at the Cincinnati Zoo, at the age of eleven. Later in his life, he wrote A Celebration of Cincinnati Opera, a book which chronicles the history of this company from its very beginnings. This episode is in memory of Charles Parsons, who passed away on July 20, 2018 at the age of 77.
