Northeast Florida's Premiere Opera Company

WELCOME TO First Coast Opera!

In this concert, we meet many characters from opera and musical theater as they introduce themselves through song.  Often, the “introduction aria” is the first thing they sing in the show and establishes that they are a central and important character in the story.  “Getting to Know You,” which borrows its title from the familiar song from The King and I, will include selections from Carmen, The Elixir of Love, The Magic Flute, Carousel, Man of La Mancha, and Showboat, as well as works of Gilbert and Sullivan and more contemporary musicals and operas.  Four featured singers will include both new and returning artists to First Coast Opera, including soprano Emma Jean Cardiff, mezzo soprano Regina Torres, tenor Erick Crow, and baritone John Dooley, accompanied by pianist Curtis Powell.  The concert also provides an opportunity for new Artistic Director Curtis Tucker to talk directly with the audience, as he serves as emcee throughout the program.
