Though the audience and opera lovers in the city are limited and small the well known operas that have been performed here such as Madame Butterfly, Turandot, Carmen, La Traviata and Rigoletto have all attracted large crowds and made the events ever more popular. There have been more than 20 performances since the event commenced. The performances very often stick to the original and it has been very rarely that new modifications and additions have been done.
Yet at the same time the theatre is slowly experimenting with the old and coming up with changes in the backdrops, setting for the plays and so on to gradually change the performances to suit the styles and tastes of a changing audience in changing times. In 2012, during the three months when the event will take place here eight products are scheduled to take place. A Masked Ball and Flying Dutchman are two of the original and brand new performances created by NCPA productions.
