A look behind the scenes into The Flood—a chamber opera that’s currently being co-produced by Opera Columbus and ProMusica Chamber Orchestra! Coming February 2019 The Flood is a story of loss, human tragedy, and redemption set in Columbus—and it represents the first collaboration between the two arts organizations.

“The opera is about the Ohio Flood of 1913 and its lasting effects — the legacy of trauma and how it is passed down through generations. All the stories take place in Columbus, a city whose low-lying, riverbank community Franklinton, the downtown neighborhood directly to the west of the Scioto River, was destroyed in the flood. The Flood will show the intense human impact of the disaster and its lingering effect through multiple generations of a family.” Read more.
