Opera on the Bayou: Voices of New Orleans

The New Orleans Opera takes pride in the unique blend of music and culture that flourishes in our city where passion, resilience, and creativity intersect. To celebrate this fusion, we have partnered with the unique and energetic string quartet, Electric Yat Quartet, and highly talented local vocalists.

Join us for a 90-minute concert that promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and community! Through the beauty of classical song, we unite to celebrate the spirit of New Orleans showcasing our homegrown talent. Don’t miss out on this exceptional event!
