North Carolina Opera has unveiled major changes to its 2020-21 season.
First off, the company has postponed its production of “Fidelio” to the 2021-22 season. The concert performance, which was originally set to take place on Nov. 15, 2020, will now be performed on Nov. 14, 2021.
Meanwhile, the production of “The Magic Flute,” which was first announced for April 2020 and then Jan. 2021, will now be performed on May 14 and 16, 2021.
The company’s production of “La Bohème” remains scheduled for April 9 and 11, 2021.
“The health and safety of our patrons, our artists, and the community at large is our paramount concern. While we have been preparing to perform for everyone in the new season, the continuing pandemic makes it necessary for us to postpone and reschedule some of our upcoming performances,” said General Director Eric Mitchko in a press release. “We look forward to the time when we can again gather together safely to enjoy opera. We thank everyone for their continued support and excitement.”
