About the Metroplex Opera Company
The Metroplex Opera Company was
founded to perform operas and operettas to enlighten and entertain
the general public.
The Metroplex Opera Company will afford
trained opera singers, actors, and instrumentalists in the Dallas-Fort
Worth area the experience and exposure necessary for a musical career.
To help young people appreciate opera, it will present short operas in
area schools. A long-range goal is to present operas and operettas in
towns without access to opera so that more people can appreciate this
unique art form.
Members of the Company have presented
Christmas concerts at Valley View Mall in Dallas, fundraising concerts
at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, and concerts of patriotic music at
retirement homes. It has performed 2 concerts for the Italian Club of
Dallas, and has given two very successful fundraising concerts at the
home of a patron.
The Metroplex Opera Company performed its
first staged work, Puccini's Suor Angelica, on March 17 and 19,
2006, at El Centro Community College.
The Company presented its second
staged production with orchestra, Sigmund Romberg's The Student
Prince, on April 11, 12, and 13, 2008, at the Lakewood Theater
The company presented the Second Act
of The Marriage of Figaro as a fundraiser at the Treemont
Retirement Community in November of 2009.
In June 2010, the Metroplex Opera
Company produced a double bill of Pergolesi's charming comedy, La
