Opera Conference & World Opera Forum

OPERA America welcomes the international opera community to Los Angeles — June 3-8, 2024 — for a week-long, global gathering of opera administrators, artists, trustees, and advocates.

The second-ever World Opera Forum and the annual North American Opera Conference, hosted by LA Opera, focus the industry on making a case for opera in the 21st century.

The week will be filled with debate, discussion, and networking — at the conclusion of which participants will leave with new insights, ideas, and relationships that circle the globe.

The World Opera Forum is a collaboration of OPERA America, Opera Europa, Ópera Latinoamérica, and the Association for Opera in Canada.
