“Glorious,” raved the New York Times when Joyce DiDonato sang the title role of Cendrillon at the Royal Opera in 2011. “Her performance was thoroughly enchanting.” Now, for the first time ever, Massenet’s sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met, with DiDonato starring in the title role. She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière. Bertrand de Billy conducts Laurent Pelly’s imaginative storybook production.

The 27th annual Magnolia Ball “Fire and Ice”

The 27th annual Magnolia Ball "Fire and Ice" @ The Millennium Center | Winston-Salem | North Carolina | United States

Join Piedmont Opera for our largest fundraiser, the 27th annual Magnolia Ball. This year our honorary chair is Phyllis Dunning.

Since Phyllis Dunning retired from teaching English literature and composition 25 years ago, she’s continued to share her passion for the arts and nurture that interest in others as she volunteers at myriad art events in Winston-Salem. During her 33 years teaching high school in Forsyth County, Dunning says she would “strongly suggest and encourage students to attend concerts and operas and theater and art exhibits,” adding that occasionally she’d entice students with extra credit. Many of her former students have gone on to have successful careers in the arts, including Ben Folds, a 1984 Reynolds grad who’s now a multiplatinum singer, songwriter, and producer and Howell Binkley, the Tony-Award-winning lighting genius behind the Broadway smash “Hamilton.”

If Mrs. Dunning made a difference in your life, we need your help. Please email Mappanaitis@piedmontopera.org for information on how to be a part of a video project in honor of Phyllis.

Puccini’s La Bohème
Oct 26 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Puccini's La Bohème @ The Stevens Center of the UNCSA | Winston-Salem | North Carolina | United States

La Bohème, the passionate, timeless, and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris, can stake its claim as the world’s most popular opera. It has a marvelous ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings. At first glance, La Bohème is the definitive depiction of the joys and sorrows of love and loss; on closer inspection, it reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.
