Opera America is a non-profit organization based in the United States that serves as the national service organization for opera. It was founded in 1970 and is dedicated to supporting the creation, presentation, and enjoyment of opera. Opera America works to advance the art form by providing resources, education, and advocacy for opera professionals and enthusiasts.
The organization's mission is to champion the development, promotion, and expansion of opera in North America. It serves as a vital hub for opera companies, artists, administrators, and audiences, fostering collaboration and exchange of ideas within the opera community. Opera America seeks to nurture and support the growth of opera companies, encourage new works and contemporary repertoire, and promote diversity and inclusivity within the field.
Opera America provides a wide range of programs and services to its members. It offers professional development opportunities, such as workshops, seminars, and conferences, to opera artists and administrators, enabling them to enhance their skills, exchange knowledge, and stay updated on industry trends. The organization also provides research and information resources, including publications and online databases, to support opera companies in their operations and decision-making processes.
One of Opera America's notable initiatives is the Opera Grants for Female Composers program, which aims to address the gender disparity in the composition field by providing financial support to female composers for the development and production of their works. This program has played a significant role in promoting gender equity in opera and encouraging the creation of new works by women.
In addition to its support for professionals, Opera America strives to engage audiences and expand opera's reach through various initiatives. It collaborates with opera companies to develop community engagement programs, educational initiatives, and audience development strategies. These efforts aim to make opera more accessible, diverse, and relevant to a wider range of individuals and communities.
