About the Metroplex Opera Company, Inc.

The Metroplex Opera Company, Inc. was founded in 2002 to enlighten and entertain the general public and to afford trained opera singers, actors and instrumentalists with the experience and exposure necessary for a musical career.

Treemont Retirement Community, 5550 Harvest Hill Road, Dallas, TX 75230Members of the company have given numerous concerts in the Dallas-Ft. Worth-Denton area, including two here at the Treemont: the Second Act of The Marriage of Figaro, which was staged around this room in costume with piano accompaniment, and a Valentine’s Day Concert in 2010.

The opera company has also presented three major works, staged, in costume, and accompanied by a live orchestra: Puccini's Suor Angelica (2006), Romberg's The Student Prince (2008), and in 2010 a double bill of Pergolesi's La Serva Padrona and Mozart's L'Impresario.

Its next production will be Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro in its entirety at the Charles W. Eisemann Center in Richardson. The performances will be on Friday, July 15 at 7:30, with a Sunday matinee, at 2:30 on July 17, 2011. All the singers you are hearing today are involved in the production.

Although there is no charge for today's concert,
contributions to this summer's opera will be deeply appreciated.

We also wish to thank Dani Jones and Nickie Thomas for allowing us to use these lovely facilities for rehearsal.
