John Moriarty, Central City Opera Artistic Director Emeritus, passed away on January 5, 2022 at the age of 91. Central City Opera will be forever grateful for the tremendous impact he made on our organization and the opera industry. To celebrate the incredible legacy he leaves behind, Central City Opera is presenting a special concert event during the 2022 Festival.

Notable international organist Nathan Laube will lead Central City Opera artists in the moving Duruflé Requiem at St. James followed by a concert in the opera house featuring aria highlights, videos and more! A dinner option prior to the concert in the Teller House Restaurant is also available for patrons.

All proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Training Program.
