Capitol City Opera Reschedules 'The Mikado' Performance to May 20, 21 & 22, 2016
The Capitol City Opera Company Board of Directors has decided to reschedule its planned fall performance of The Mikado to May 20, 21 and 22, 2016.
The show dates are being shifted to ensure that the Company will continue to deliver the highest level of performance excellence in our main stage productions, as well as our youth-focused educational outreach, Dinner and a Diva programs, the Madrigal Singers, On the Light Side productions, and other scheduled operational performances.
The Board believes this is an appropriate and prudent decision which best serves the Capitol City Opera vision and mission, our donors, and our loyal audiences.
As with many other performing arts organizations, Capitol City has been affected in recent years by changing economic conditions. This has resulted in a flattened level of contributions. While we have had a string of beautiful and successful productions over the past 4 years, costs continue to rise, and ticket sales generally cover 1/3rd or less of the costs associated with a major production.
We ask our patrons, friends, and other supporters to please accept our apologies for any inconvenience the rescheduled dates for The Mikado will cause. We hope you appreciate Capitol City’s commitment to upholding superior artistic standards for more than 30 years. This decision positions us to continue to meet that expectation for years to come.
