Showcasing some of the finest local and regional talent, Cascadia Concert Opera presents opera in intimate venues throughout the Pacific Northwest. Each summer/fall season they present 8-12 performances across the Willamette Valley in schools, churches, libraries, public spaces, and theaters.
“At Cascadia Concert Opera we believe that opera is for everyone, and we are dedicated to bringing exceptional and imaginative opera to audiences through access, artistic excellence, and community engagement,” said artistic director Bereniece Jones-Cenento.
This season Cascadia Concert Opera presents “Die Fledermaus” by Johann Strauss II. It’s a comic operetta, first performed in 1874, about extravagance, flirtation, mistaken identity, and sweet revenge featuring some of the most captivating and memorable melodies ever composed.

Everyone has a secret to hide and a trick up their sleeve in this exquisite and hilarious farce. The opera will be presented in concert version with piano accompaniment and will be performed in English.
