Opera San José

Opera San José is dedicated to maintaining a resident company of opera singers with whom we present compelling, professional opera performances, while creating and providing cultural and educational programs that both enrich the opera-going experience and encourage future generations of artists and audiences. Opera San José also provides technical assistance to other organizations.


Founded in 1984, Opera San José is unique in that it is the only year-long resident opera company in the nation. Members of the resident company form the core of the artistic staff for main-stage productions as well as educational programs.

To achieve this mission, Opera San José will:

  • Maintain a professional, fiscally responsible opera company of artistic excellence for San  José and its environs;
  • Discover, retain and develop outstanding, emerging professional singers;
  • Provide these singers with repeated performance opportunities;
  • Develop, entertain, and educate audiences from the extended community.
