Founded in 1976, Eugene Opera has helped launch the careers of such singers as Deborah Voigt, Susan Graham, Gregory Turay, Lucas Meacham, Stephen Mark Brown, and Kelley Nassief. The company has been in residence at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts since 1982. Its 2010-2011 season is scheduled to begin in December with Puccini’s La Bohème, starring Metropolitan Opera artists Emily Pulley and Michael Mayes. In the spring, the company will present Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado with Christiane Noll (a 2010 Tony Award nominee for Ragtime) and renowned baritone Robert Orth heading the cast.
