Welcome to our website from all of our Northern Ohio Opera League members.

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. 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 learn and enjoy this high art form. You can support the effort with ads or donations but it is far more fun attending our programs to enjoy quality music, meeting new people and yes maybe 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!

Opera Per Tutti, New Name

Opera Per Tutti, New Name

Dec 12, 2014

Opera Per Tutti is changing it's name, not quality, to Cleveland Opera Theater. While Opera Per Tutti always was one of our favorite Opera Groups in Northern Ohio it's name didn't reflect what area it performed in. Opera Per Tutti meant "Opera For All" so it's new name will let all know where it performs. While I (Greg Polyak) loved the name Opera Per Tutti, I understand the name change to move it into a larger importance to the area NOOL supports, Northern Ohio. If you have never been to one of their performances I highly suggest you attend because Andrea Annelli always demands and succeeds in presenting real quality.
