With this production of Carmen, Lyric Opera of the North will begin its Tenth Anniversary Season. With that in mind, our goals for this production are to Celebrate, Stretch, and Grow. Carmen is a huge production, filled with gorgeous music and a gripping story. It is exuberant, tragic, and seductive -- a great representation of opera! Collaborating with the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra will give us an opportunity to learn from an established organization, take new risks, and form new relationships. Studies show that symphony patrons are not necessarily opera patrons. We look forward to making new friends for the opera with one of the most recognizable and accessible operas in the repertoire.This is the first collaboration of this type for Lyric Opera of the North. We will be working closely with the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra to assess the project from its very beginning to the end. We will meet regularly with the executive director and music director from the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, for continuous evaluation. After the project is completed, Lyric Opera of the North will gather its Board of Directors and the General Artistic Directors to discuss the project. This evaluation, along with patron and artist feedback help us measure our outcomes. Of course ticket sales and ad sales are numbers that are evaluated, as well.
