Opera Performance Pays Tribute to CIM’s History

Opera performance in 2017

The CIM Opera Theater—with artistic director Dean Southern, conductor Harry Davidson and the Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra—takes the stage to present a gala-style performance November 5-6 in Kulas Hall. 

Mexican-American bass-baritone Richard Ollarsaba (BM ’09, Schiller/Southern) returns to his alma mater for this exciting tribute to CIM’s illustrious singing history. The performance will feature some of opera’s most beloved arias and ensembles – from Mozart to Wagner – and will conclude with Vaughan Williams’ stirring Serenade to Music, all under the baton of Maestro Harry Davidson with the CIM Orchestra. Explore the full program.
