  • The North Carolina Museum of Art
    Opera is an art form with a grand tradition, but that doesn't mean it can't be accessible. Enter North Carolina Opera—from stage left, singing—a company that makes its mission sharing this unique art form with everyone. Its skilled performers travel to audiences across the Triangle, staging productions in both full-sized theaters and intimate school auditoriums. The opera's repertoire is just as wide-ranging; seasons have included favorites such as La Boheme and Cosi Fan Tutte, as well as lesser-known gems like Rusalka and contemporary works by Philip Glass and John Supko. Lavish costumes and sets further entice onlookers to escape into North Carolina Opera's fantastical worlds.

The multi-level gallery takes on six exhibitions each year, immersing visitors in an ever-changing landscape of installations, sculptures, and paintings by local and national artists.
