Mission and Purpose of NOOL (Northern Ohio Opera League)
To Support Opera in Northern Ohio
Communities need active arts and sports programs to enhance the overall living environment. Cleveland's past has a history of loss including the Ballet, Brown's Football, various hockey and soccer teams, Cleveland Opera, Red the Orchestra, Lyric Opera and more. Other institutions have gone through perilous financial times including the Cleveland Orchestra. NOOL is dedicated in helping Opera through its own programs, events and benefits. We use local talent to help them remain active in their own art form. Help us help our community. You can support the effort with donations but it is far more fun attending our programs to enjoy quality music, meeting new people and yes may be even becoming active by joining with our members putting the programs together and getting the satisfaction of keeping alive the Arts in Cleveland. Bravo, Brava!

History of Hungarian Operettas at: the Hungarian Heritage Museum
History of Hungarian Operettas
If you love operettas, love the music and the stories, don't miss the Hungarian Heritage Museum's latest "WORLD OF HUNGARIAN OPERA, COMPOSERS AND THEIR WORKS" special exhibit through Nov 29, 2013.
The exhibit celebrates the legacy of operetta composers Franz Lehar, Emmerich Kálmán, and Sigmund Romberg whose works were performed and enjoyed world-wide, as well as Pongrác Kacsoh, Victor Jacobi, Jenõ Huszka, Mihály Eismann, Albert Szirmai and other Hungarian composers who are lesser known today but whose creations gained Hungarian operetta recognition internationally at the beginning of the 20th century. Such Operettas as: The Student Prince, New Moon, The Rose of China, The Merry Window, Sybil, Countess Maritza, Apple Blossoms, and Little Boy Blue just to mention a few. The exhibit will continually be added to until it's end so visit more than once!
Come and learn about the composers and their works as the exhibit showcases the World of Hungarian Operetta through their music, film clips, posters, playbills, pictures, including costumes from stage productions on loan from the Ohio Light Opera in Wooster, Ohio.
The Museum is located in the Galleria at Erieview, at E. 9th and St. Clair. It is open to the public, everyone is welcome. Open Tuesday - Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
