Opera began as a radical experiment in France and Italy of the 17th Century and became what would be considered the modern equivalent of a blockbuster, IMAX experience extravaganza! Drama, music, and voice combined in the most challenging and innovative ways capture the awe of audiences everywhere. New Orleans Opera, in our 75th year, is going to create a human connection across time and history, classic to modern, offering something for everyone, parish to parish!
Opera holds the power to thrill and provoke! New Orleans Opera is committed to honoring this power and versatility through the highest quality of production, practice, and artistry. We will forge new connections to audience and community alike via the joy of opera.
