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.

Opera On The Playbill

CIM Opera Theater presents: MOZART La Clemenza di Tito (The Mercy of Titus)

Whether from a meddling mob in ancient Rome or a ravenous pack of reporters at a press conference in D.C., politicians' lives are publicly scrutinized–especially their love lives.
The title character of Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito learns this lesson all too well when he is forced to give up the woman he loves by the people he governs. His attempt to find a politically acceptable wife just makes matters worse. Love, jealousy and betrayal all play a role in this two act Italian opera, Mozart's last grand opera (written while working on The Magic Flute), presented by the CIM Opera Theater in Kulas Hall, Wednesday, February 25 through Saturday, February 28.
Will the quality of his mercy be strained? Only Tito will tell.
Sung in Italian, this production includes projected English translations.
