This event has reached capacity, and tickets are no longer available.

We’re thrilled to present our 10th Back to the Zoo concert at our first home, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, where performances were held from 1920 to 1971. Join hosts Evans Mirageas, The Harry T. Wilks Artistic Director of Cincinnati Opera, and Thane Maynard, Director of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, in celebrating the Zoo Opera days with a special free concert featuring a colorful cast of singers and zoo animals.


POWER OF HER: Cincinnati Opera’s 10th annual Back to the Zoo concert is a tribute to four women who have provided fundamental support to Cincinnati Opera. Anna Sinton Taft and Mary Emery saved the bankrupt Zoo in 1917, and were integral to the creation of Cincinnati Opera in 1920. The Marge and Charles J. Schott Foundation and Bobbie Unnewehr have provided support for the Back to the Zoo concert since its inception in 2010.
