What We Do

Opera Omaha is a vital community resource that enriches lives and elevates the cultural vibrancy of our entire region. Opera Omaha is recognized as one of the most innovative, relevant and accessible companies in the nation – producing world-class opera productions and ground-breaking new works and delivering community programs that engage students, individuals experiencing homelessness, incarcerated youth, hospital patients and thousands of other people in meaningful, artistic experiences each year.

At this crucial time, Opera Omaha continues to share the power of opera with you and support those artists and individuals that are the heartbeat of the art form. Since last spring, Opera Omaha’s free community programs and ground-breaking digital productions – including the world’s first-ever live virtual reality opera - have been lifting spirits, bringing isolated people together and providing comfort to thousands of your neighbors during these uncertain and trying times. Opera Omaha’s Holland Community Opera Fellows continue their crucial work with community partners across the city, while also delivering live and virtual performances throughout the community.

Opera Omaha is excited to return to live performances this spring beginning with a collaboration with the Omaha Symphony at the Holland Center this April. The company's spring concert, “Opera Under the Stars”, will be at the Holland Center’s outdoor stage in May featuring several phenomenal singers scheduled to appear with Opera Omaha on the Orpheum stage this season. Opera Omaha’s outdoor free concert series, “Opera to Go” will resume, bringing the beauty, joy and magic of opera to neighborhoods throughout the region.

Every gift enables Opera Omaha to continue to bring you exciting projects that are vital to our community and will keep Opera Omaha at the forefront of artistic innovation. Your generosity will ensure that Opera Omaha is able to return to the Orpheum stage with the world-class productions you love, deliver free community programs that enrich the lives of tens of thousands of people each year and continue to support the artists who inspire us with their talent and dedication for years to come.
