We are in an era when humanity is reeling from a global pandemic and artists and musicians are engaged in an epic battle for survival. The intensity of human emotion that is inherent in opera engages, immerses, and stirs the souls of the audience. When an audience has the shared experience of a LIVE performance, it has a unifying effect on a community. For more information about Charleston Opera Theater go to
