National Opera Week
National Opera Week will celebrate the vitality of opera in America as a contemporary cultural expression. The strength and diversity of established opera companies, community opera ensembles and opera training programs across the United States will be shared through a variety of free and accessible activities for opera lovers and newcomers to the art form. Launched with the presentation of the 2009 NEA Opera Honors in Washington, D.C., the celebration will reach from coast to coast as opera companies offer a range of free programs for the public that demonstrate the allure and accessibility of this most multi-media of the arts.

Included within National Opera Week will be other noteworthy events, including the annual Opera News Awards and the star-studded annual Richard Tucker Music Foundation Gala. From open houses, lecture/demonstrations and community performances to the presentation of the nation's highest award in the field, National Opera Week will bring the inventiveness and excitement of opera to a national audience.
