This spring has brought untold changes to everyone’s lives. When the Covid-19 virus began to unfold in March, the Opera postponed the production of Susannah until June. At the time it was thought that the Vocal Competition and the Grand Finale Concert might be spared, but it was quickly discovered that the company would have to cancel all April and May performances.
Now the opera is faced with the reality that Susannah will have to be cancelled too. This decision was painful to make, especially knowing that the Opera’s patrons will not get to see this beautiful opera or hear the incredible voices of its remarkable cast. Everyone is deeply impacted by these events. The Annapolis Opera greatly appreciates all the support received from the community.

The Grand Finale
Annapolis Opera’s favorite performers return in an all-star concert to honor Artistic Director Ronald Gretz and Stage Director Braxton Peters. This concert celebrates their years of collaboration and dedication.
Annapolis Opera Names Craig Kier
New Artistic and Music Director
Maestro Craig Kier will assume his role on July 1, 2020 and will open the Annapolis Opera’s 2020 – 2021 season conducting Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme.
Based on the biblical story “Susannah and the Elders,” this 1954 opera is set in rural Tennessee and is rich with Appalachian folk melodies and connections to the McCarthy era in which it was written.
Overall, the performance leaves you wanting more from this company, and more you shall have.
This…was a gratifying evening of music-making in Maryland’s famed ‘Crab Town.’
The Annapolis Opera is an absolute gem on the East Coast…This company is capable of taking opera to the next level of artistry and performance. Any opera fan who is able to make it to Annapolis should consider any show produced by the Annapolis Opera a must-see.
