Our mission to inspire, challenge and uplift our audiences by creating productions of high artistic quality that celebrate the beauty and breadth of opera is at the core of everything we do.
From our point of view, we’re here because of you.
Opera patrons come in all ages and from all over the region. That’s why you’ll find our touring productions crisscrossing Oregon and SW Washington, engaging over 35,000 youngsters. It’s why our mainstage productions draw nearly 42,000 patrons, selling out many of the season’s performances.
In short, it’s why we’re here.
To produce opera that has the power to change your life.
