Celebrate Opera in New Orleans

NOOA Celebrates National Opera Week Nov. 13-22

Celebrate Opera in New Orleans - America's First City of Opera!

Opera has become such a vital part of the American musical fabric that over 90 companies/organizations (nationwide) are participating in and celebrating the FIRST EVER National Opera Week. The New Orleans Opera offers a range of free programs for the public that demonstrate the allure and accessibility of this most multi-media of the arts.

National Opera Week is nationally organized by OPERA America, the national service organization for opera, with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts and locally by New Orleans Opera Association.

NATIONAL OPERA WEEK will officially launch with the presentation of the 2009 NEA Opera Honors to Marilyn Horne, John Adams, Frank Corsaro, Lotfi Mansouri and Julius Rudel on November 14 at the Harman Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.
