Opera in the park


Due to inclement weather and concern for the safety of our audience, artists, musicians, and crew members, our 2018 evening's outdoor Opera in the Park concert was canceled, and will not be rescheduled. Thank you for understanding!

Celebrate Cincinnati Opera's 98th Summer Festival with a magical evening of music in Washington Park.

Join us in kicking off our 2018 season with a free outdoor concert in OTR. The evening will feature a selection of opera and musical theater favorites performed by stars of Cincinnati Opera's 2018 season, the Cincinnati Opera Chorus, and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and the whole family, and enjoy an evening of opera under the setting sun.
