  • Opera Thursdays

    If you've wanted to try opera but have been wary of committing to a full-fledged production, Opera Thursday can be a good introduction. Through a partnership with area restaurants and The Palmetto Opera, this series offers a sampling of opera during dinner. Performers will sing two or three arias from well-known operas during dinner hours.

    Puccini, The Mikado & More…
    East meets West at the Columbia Museum of Art


    Join us for a memorable evening of Art and Music with a performance of famous arias and popular Broadway classics of an operatic tradition.  Headlined by three American performers with long and successful careers on European stages, you will be amazed by the caliber of talent and transfixed by this transcendent experience.  This performance will help to illustrate the influence of Western opera on contemporary Japanese opera.  Backdropped by the CMAs exhibition of Japan and the Jazz Age, the museum exhibition features a dynamic range of compelling objects created in the Art Deco style including kimonos, furniture, sculpture and evocative ephemera such as sheet music, posters, postcards, prints, and photography that guide visitors through this rich period in world history and visual culture.

    Happy Hour 6:00 pm  |  Performance 7:00 pm

  • Were you there?

    Carmen was a huge success! Teatro Lirico d'Europa's performance on March 1, 2014 at the Koger Center was a spectacular production, both well-reviewed and well-enjoyed by all who attended!

    On January 30, Teatro Lirico d'Europa gave a magical performance in 'A Tribute to Pavarotti', a collection of Pavarotti's best-loved arias followed by an elegant meet-the-cast party.
