Nina West Is Getting Her Own Opera Extravaganza With Opera Columbus

Nina West’s meteoric rise is still happening, friends.

If you thought that shooting to stardom would stop at RuPaul’s Drag Race, you were wrong. Nina West has been crushing it lately. She’s doing national promotions, releasing albums, rocking red carpet looks, and she’s doing it all with grace. As we all know, Nina is the perfect person to represent Columbus. As an LGBTQ advocate, Nina has raised over $2 million for charitable causes in the last decade alone with her foundation The Nina West Foundation.

This summer, Columbus will be rolling out the red carpet at the Southern Theatre for Opera Columbus presents Nina West, a brand new show where drag meets opera. Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event have already gone on sale for Opera Columbus season ticket subscribers and they hit the market for the general public on November 25. Tickets start at $25.

Nina West has produced over 35 main stage production shows in her decades of work around Columbus and all of that experience will culminate in what I can only imagine will be a truly epic performance.

If you don’t want to risk waiting for general public tickets, Opera Columbus is offering a mini-season subscription for the remainder of its 2019-2020 season, including tickets to “The Barber of Seville,” Feb. 14 and 16, 2020, and “The Poppea Project,” April 22-26, 2020. You can get more info about tickets here.
