It’s a local treasure. Having a local Professional Opera Company adds to West Michigan’s growing reputation as a center for the arts.

It’s a tradition. Opera has been a part of Grand Rapids culture for nearly 50 years – and has entertained people around the world for over 400 years.

It’s great storytelling. Opera is about love. Fighting. Adventure. Comedy. Misunderstanding. Heartbreak. And sometimes all of them at once.
