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.

History:

Originating over 25 years ago, Chamber Opera Chicago is now in its fifth year under the direction of General/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!”
