The Knoxville Opera enthralls and educates audiences with locally produced, classic opera. Its season kicks off with Guiseppe Verdi’s classic La Traviata—the tale of the doomed romance between a courtesan and a young romantic—which casts star soprano Joyce El-Khoury as Violetta and premiers Zach Borichevsky as her reptilian lover Alfredo. A season of ill-fated passions and shortened honeymoons carries on with Charles Gounod’s operatic interpretation of Romeo and Juliette, in which two coworkers despise each other in the office, but fall in love over the Internet. In April, Verdi's work takes center stage again to tackle jealousy and rage in Otelllo. Greek soprano Kassandra Dimopoulou makes her American debut in this production, and international performer Michael Austin plays her distrustful spouse.

For a single performance or the entire season, patrons are seated near the intoxicating melodies in sections A, B, or C. Translations are performed at each showing, eliminating the need for an interpreter or an emergency trip to Europe.

Knoxville Opera

The Knoxville Opera sings most of its notes in a venue befitting the regality of its material: the Tennessee Theatre. The former movie-house and decades-old stage swathes performers in Spanish-Moorish design, a strikingly blue domed ceiling, burgundy velvet seats, and gold accents. But the opera singers don't keep their voices contained there. Education and outreach programs send them throughout the community, performing at schools, shaking the downtown streets during themed festivals, and aiding local construction companies by shattering old glass buildings.
