Opera Roanoke is the premier opera company west of Richmond and the only one that serves the communities of Virginia's Blue Ridge. Along with two fully-staged operas per season, Opera Roanoke continues to enrich our community through a wide variety of outreach programs and events.
Opera Roanoke's tuition-free Apprentice Artist Program affords carefully selected students from area colleges and universities the opportunity to work directly with Opera Roanoke's artistic staff and guest artists. Apprenticeships are not limited to singers but, encompass a variety of theatrical professions including conducting, stage managing, and music administration. Apprentices present programs in K-12 local school systems, nursing homes, civic groups, and churches. Your donation helps keep these programs FREE!
OPERAtions are Opera Roanoke's outreach programs for schools and community organizations. In 2017, Opera Roanoke connected with over 12,000 adults and children through these programs and continue to expand their reach each year.
