History of CHAMBER OPERA CHICAGO

CHAMBER OPERA CHICAGO is a professional not-for-profit opera company devoted to making great opera affordable, presenting operas in English in intimate settings and providing performance opportunities for Chicago-area singers. The Chamber Opera Chicago Orchestra is distinguished by first-rate conductors and orchestral players and has been highly praised by both critics and audience members alike. With award-winning designers and acclaimed directors from around the world, audiences can expect high quality, innovative productions that bring opera to life.

Originating over 30 years ago, Chamber Opera Chicago is now in its twelfth year under the direction of Artistic Director Barbara Landis and has re-energized its original mission of making opera accessible to the widest possible audience. “COC has the potential to become an opera company on par with a repertory theatre,” Landis says. “We want to move our audience emotionally and create memorable performances for both experienced opera-goers and novices. Our main goal is to touch the hearts of our audience members…make them laugh, make them cry, and leave them wanting more!”
