The New Castle Lyric opera supports opera in the community!

Dear Opera Lover,

We live in a world where the soul scarcely can find a place to rest. And when it gets sick, no doctor, advanced medicine, chemistry or technology can cure it. Few people on this planet know that a treatment, a very pure and natural one already exists, where the vibrations of the divine sounds of the human voice and musical instruments harmonize with those of our spirit and heal it. This can occur only live and direct.

Even the smallest contribution will be an immense help in making this happen.

Should NCLO wear your name?

The New Castle Lyric Opera wants to bear your name. This professional opera company, with high-quality artistic leadership, an exceptional orchestra and ensemble, and international guest artists, will be performing in the Scottish Rite Cathedral. The cathedral is one of the largest performing arts facilities between New York and Chicago, with a capacity of 2800 seats. Its stage can support every major operatic work, and it is optimally situated to attract audiences between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Make your personal legacy come true. Contribute to the cultural landscape of our country with your financial investment. Endow the NCLO and make a difference. "Opera Lifts the Spirit and Educates the Soul!"
