Welcome to the new blog for the Toledo Opera Guild, "Cast of Characters"!
The Toledo Opera Guild is a non-profit organization that celebrates and promotes opera in our fair Glass City and throughout northwest Ohio. We volunteer our time and talents to expand the passion for opera in our community and to financially support the Toledo Opera.
Learn more about the guild and how to become a member on its website at toledooperaguild.com.
The mission of Toledo Opera is to enhance the cultural fabric of the region by creating opera experiences that celebrate, both in the theater and beyond its walls, what is unique to this art form: dramatic, passionate stories expressed through glorious music and the powerful voices of classically trained singers.
Learn more about the Toledo Opera and its performances and programs on its website at toledoopera.org.
But who exactly are these people? Who are the folks who organize and attend Toledo Opera Guild events like Phashion of the Opera and Mad Hatter? Who goes to Toledo Opera performances such as "Faust" or to Summer Opera Camp? Who even likes opera?
Well, we do! And some of us are real characters indeed. We are all kinds of people, with all kinds of tastes in music and art, from all kinds of backgrounds, with varied ranges of experience with opera.
Here on this blog you will learn more about us, and we hope to learn more about you and how we can best serve our community.
If you have a story about opera that you would like to share, please submit it and we'll post it here on the blog. Like us on Facebook to view and share photos of Toledo Opera Guild events, and follow us on Twitter.
You'll find out just how fun it is to be an opera character too!
