The Victorian Lyric Opera Company (VLOC) was founded in 1978 to perform musical works of the Victorian era. Our first show was Trial By Jury paired with Cox and Box. Since that time we have performed all of the works in the Gilbert & Sullivan canon, most of them many times over. We have also branched out into other European operettas and even grand opera, like Mozart's The Magic Flute & Donizetti's The Elixir of Love. The mission of the company has been and continues to be to provide high quality performances of light operatic works, providing educational and performance opportunities for our community. Our membership is drawn from all over the Greater Washington Metropolitan area. We have performers of all ages in our company, and often will have multiple generations of the same family on stage at the same time. In 2011, The Victorian Lyric Opera Company merged with The Forgotten Opera Company. VLOC is a resident company at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre at the Rockville Civic Center.
The F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre is located in Rockville at 603 Edmonston Drive in Rockville's Civic Center Park.
