Queen City Chamber Opera is a professional opera company based in Cincinnati. Our mission is to present emerging opera artists in fully staged production of operas by repertory composers. When you come to our productions, you know you will hear the stars of tomorrow before you hear about them.

The company was profiled in August 2014 in the Business Section of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Artists who debuted with QCCO have continued their careers with engagements at Opera Memphis, Virginia Opera, Kentucky Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Opera Columbus, Opera Carolina, Opera Utah and Opera Theater of Pittsburgh.

QCCO is registered with the IRS as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3). If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation, we have many sponsorship opportunities available. Please contact us for more info.


“These young artists and their young conductor make one sit up and take notice, and many of us will be following their development with high expectations.”
