Camp Hill Light Opera Experience was created to present staged performances of well-known, unknown, and soon-to-be-known light opera and operetta of the highest possible quality standards, with a focus on new works, new composers and librettists, and new, young, and emerging talent, in an atmosphere of artistic collaboration between all involved.
Our goal is to have CHLOE become an annual event, with each festival including either a new work by a new composer, or a quality work from the light opera & comic operetta category from any time period and by any composer, either famous or obscure, that are considered to be overlooked, unappreciated, or under-performed in the Central PA region.
Principal roles will be played by paid professionals, very often emerging artists. Smaller featured roles, chorus, and orchestra will be cast when at all possible from local talent pools, especially high school and college students, as well as adult amateurs and professionals. Designers, crew, and volunteers will also be sourced from Camp Hill and the surrounding communities.
Every effort will be taken to make CHLOE a community effort, with outreach efforts to schools and community organizations to support the artistic well-being of the surrounding area, as well as support coming from it in the form of sponsorships, grants, and other contributions. Whether on stage, behind the scenes, or in the seats, please join us!
