NCO re-opens with a concert performance of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, a shining story of freedom and love. Florestan is a political prisoner. His wife, Leonore, disguises herself as a man – named “Fidelio” – and takes a job in the prison, hoping to find a way to free him while facing great danger along the way.  This tale of heroism is an ode to love’s triumph over tyranny, and is uniquely suited to Beethoven’s spirited and soulful voice.

Now after a year off the road, Tomlinson is set to return to the stage with her new Deal With It Tour. One of the youngest comedians to headline theaters in decades, joining the likes of Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle, Tomlinson says of the new tour, “This hour is definitely darker and more personal – ‘Quarter Life Crisis’ was about being frustrated with where you’re at in life and this new material is about taking a hard look at who you are and how you got that way.”

Your trip to Paris begins when Puccini’s La bohème returns to the NCO stage! Follow the love of the poet Rodolfo and the seamstress Mimi from their first meeting on Christmas Eve through all the ups and downs of their relationship. No composer was better at creating atmosphere than Puccini, and none had a style better suited to convey the waves of emotion that go along with a new romance.  The combination makes for an indelible tale of young love in the City of Lights.

*Tickets bought for La bohème in the 20-21 season are still valid for the 21-22 season.

Carolina Ballet is proud to perform once again the beloved tale of Romeo & Juliet. Set to Prokofiev’s magnificent score, Weiss’ ballet is a faithful retelling that expresses all the drama and pathos, action and tenderness, humor and heartbreak found in this legendary story.

Filled with dramatic sword fights, stunning costumes, lush scenery and breathtaking dance, this ballet underscores the emotion of Shakespeare’s powerful play and brings to life the love, longing and loss of this epic tragedy.
